On The Distribution Of The Hodge Locus


The lecture will discuss a joint work with Gregorio Baldi and Bruno Klingler. Given a polarized Z-variation of Hodge structures  over a complex, smooth quasi-projective variety S, we describe some properties of the Hodge locus,  a countable union of algebraic subvarieties of S where exceptional Hodge tensors appear, by a result of Cattani, Deligne and Kaplan. We prove the geometric part of the Zilber-Pink conjecture in this context: the maximal atypical part of the Hodge locus of postive period demension arise in a finite number of families. In level at least 3, we show that  the typical Hodge is empty and therefore the positive dimensional part of the Hodge locus is algebraic. For instance the Hodge locus of positive period dimension of the universal family of degree d smooth hypersurfaces in the projective space of dimension n+1 is algebraic.  We also prove that if the typical Hodge locus is not empty, then the Hodge locus is analytically dense in S.
