Árpád Tóth (ELTE): Introduction to ellpitic curves (abstract)


We will look at the theory of elliptic curves from various points of view. We start with explaining what an elliptic curve is over the complex numbers. This will provide a geometric intuition for the so-called group law, valid over any field. We will then use this group structure to understand arithmetic questions over the rationals, or mod p.
