Title: Heigh Functions


This talk will be a survey of the theory of heights. We will consider heights for projective varieties over number fields and function fields. We will not only consider finiteness of points of bounded degree and height, but also the number of such points. If time allows, we will consider how the heights associated to different line bundles on a projective variety are related.
