An Isaac Newton Institute Event

Spitalfields Day - Potential Modularity

Friday 30 October 2009

Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK

Organisers: John Coates, Tim Dokchitser, Vladimir Dokchitser, Mohamed Saidi

in association with the Newton Institute programme entitled Non-Abelian Fundamental Groups in Arithmetic Geometry and the Number Theory Seminar at DPMMS

This special event is a short course on modularity and potential modularity for elliptic curves and Galois representations. The talks by internationally leading experts aim to give both the background and recent developments in the subject, and will be accessible to graduate students working in number theory, arithmetic geometry and related areas
