## The geometric constants in Manin's Conjecture

##### Abstract:

Manin's Conjecture predicts that the behavior of rational points on a variety X is controlled by certain geometric constants associated to X. I will discuss how the minimal model program can be used to analyze the behavior of these constants. This is joint work with Sho Tanimoto and Yuri Tschinkel.
