Algebra seminar in Lincoln: talk by Dr Vladimir Dokchitser

On Wednesday the 5th of December 2018 Dr Vladimir Dokchitser (King’s College, University of London) visited the Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra in Lincoln and gave a talk  “Ranks of Elliptic Curves”.

Abstract: “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.”
