Heights, algebraic dynamics and Berkovich analytic spaces. (English) Zbl 1243.14023
Summary: This paper is an exposition on heights and their importance in the modern study of algebraic dynamics. We explain the idea of canonical height and its surprising relation to algebraic dynamics, invariant measures, arithmetic intersection theory, equidistribution and $$p$$-adic analytic geometry.
