Towards Strong Minimality and the Fuchsian Triangle Groups

**Abstract:**From the work of Freitag and Scanlon, we have that the ODEs satisfied by the Hauptmoduls of arithmetic subgroups of $SL_2(\mathbb{Z})$ are strongly minimal and geometrically trivial. A challenge is to now show that same is true of ODEs satisfied by the Hauptmoduls of all (remaining) Fuchsian triangle groups. The aim of this talk is to both explain why this an interesting/important problem and also to discuss some of the progress made so far.

There will be coffee in 636 before the talk. This talk is part of Midwest Model Theory Day, a conference series which happens once per semester at UIC. For details, www.math.uic.edu/~freitag/mwmt
