Height functions are useful for “bookkeeping” when solving diophantine equations but also have interesting intrinsic properties. They played an important role in resolving the Mordell conjecture and its generalizations. Philipp Habegger’s research includes applications to conjectures on unlikely intersections and the distribution of height values.
