Professor Karl Rubin Bernoulli Lecture - Some new conjectures about abelian points on elliptic curves.

14 September 2017

17:15 - 18:15
Room : BI A0 448


Karl Rubin, University of California, Irvine

In this talk I will begin by introducing elliptic curves and some basic questions about them. After recalling what is known in the case of elliptic curves over the rational numbers, I will discuss some new heuristics and conjectures about how the group of points grows in towers of abelian extensions. This is joint work with Barry Mazur.
