Invitation to integral and rational points on curves and surfaces
Paper in proceeding, 2015

We provide a basic short introduction to Diophantine Geometry focusing on solutions to polynomial equations that correspond to rational and integral point of curves and surfaces. The methods employed are quite elementary and require no advanced background. We provide several explicit examples as well as ample citation for the motivated reader, aiming at introducing non-specialist to this intriguing world.
