Title: Introduction to Elliptic Curves
Speaker: Shubham Sinha (Graduate Student at UC San Diego, USA)
Date: 27 July 2018
Time: 2 pm
Venue: LH-2, Mathematics Department
Elliptic curves are important objects of study in various areas of research in modern mathematics. In this talk I will develop some algebraic and geometric tools to understand the group structures on elliptic curves and their Isogenies (certain kind of homomorphisms). I will specialise the general study of Elliptic Curves over finite fields, define zeta functions of associated Elliptic Curve and state the Weil Conjectures.
