Title: A case of the dynamical Andre-Oort conjecture
Abstract: I will discuss the dynamical Andre-Oort conjecture proposed by Baker-DeMarco, focusing on a case suggested by Ingram and proved recently by Ghioca, Nguyen, Tucker, and myself: namely, if a curve C is defined by y=h(x) with h polynomial, and C contains infinitely many points (x,y) for which z^d+x and z^d + y are both post-critically finite, then h(x) = Ax for some (d-1)st root of unity A.
