Professor John Coates Bernoulli Lecture - Non-Vanishing of some Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer L-values.   14 December 2017

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


John Coates, University of Cambridge

I will discuss some recent joint work with Yongxiong Li which shows how one can use Iwasawa theory at the neglected prime p=2 to prove stronger versions of an old theorem of David Rohrlich on the non-vanishing of Birch-Swinnerton L-values of the Gross family of elliptic curves with complex multiplication, and discuss some possible generalisations.
