## Idea

Arithmetic geometry is a branch of algebraic geometry studying schemes (usually of finite type) over the spectrum $Spec \mathbb{Z}$ of the ring of integers, for number theoretic purposes; usually one complements this with some data “at the prime at infinity” leading to a more modern notion of an arithmetic scheme (cf. Arakelov geometry).
