Institution: University of British Columbia
Date: Tue 21st March 2017
Time: 12:00 PM
Location: Russell Love Theatre

Abstract: Elliptic curves arise in the most curious places, ranging from Mathematical Physics to Cryptography. In this talk, we will survey some recent advances on Number Theoretic aspects of these objects, due to Bhargava and others, and try to describe a number of interesting open problems.
