Research Interests: Baker’s Theorem on the linear independence of logarithms of algebraic numbers has been the key to a vast range of developments in number theory over the past thirty years. Amongst the most significant are applications to the effective solution of Diophantine equations, to the resolution of class-number problems, to the theory of p-adic L-functions and especially, through works of Masser and Wüstholz, to many deep aspects of arithmetical algebraic geometry. The theory continues to be a source of much fruitful research to the present day.
