In anabelian geometry, a branch of algebraic geometry, the section conjecture gives a conjectural description of the splittings of the group homomorphism , where is a complete smooth curve of genus at least 2 over a field that is finitely generated over , in terms of decomposition groups of rational points of . The conjecture was introduced by Alexander Grothendieck (1997) in a 1983 letter to Gerd Faltings.
