Algebra seminar by Vladimir Dokchitser

On Wednesday the 5th of December 2018, Vladimir Dokchitser (King’s College London) will be visiting the Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra and giving a seminar on Ranks of Elliptic Curves. His talk will be at 3pm in INB 3305. All are welcome.

His talk abstract is as follows:

“I will discuss elliptic curves from the classical number theoretic point of view of trying to solve Diophantine equations. The aim will be both to explain how we think about these creatures and to give an overview of what we can (and sometimes can’t) prove about them, and to illustrate it with explicit examples. I will not try to describe the huge modern technical machine that has been developed to study elliptic curves, so most of the results will come as black boxes.”
