The non-abelian Kummer map associated to a variety X is a certain function which relates the Diophantine geometry of X to its etale fundamental group, and appears for example in the non-abelian Chabauty method of Minhyong Kim. In this talk, I will outline work in progress with Netan Dogra, providing a completely explicit description of the p-adic non-abelian Kummer map for a curve X over an l-adic field (l different from p) in terms of harmonic analysis on its reduction graph. In particular, we obtain a description of the local components of p-adic height functions on X in terms of the combinatorial height pairing on its reduction graph, thereby removing one of the current limitations on the explicit quadratic Chabauty method of Balakrishnan and Dogra.
