Title:  Integral models of varieties over the rationals

Abstract:   In this talk, we will introduce Spec(Z) and discuss how to view geometric objects living over it. Then, we will explore some examples and see how a variety defined over the rational numbers can be stretched into a model over the integers. Finally, we will define what it means for such a variety to have good or bad reduction modulo a prime. If time permits, we will also talk about elliptic curves over the rationals in more depth.
