A survey of elliptic curves

Tuesday 13th July 2004 - 09:30 to 10:20
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Matrix Ensembles and L-Functions

This talk will be a fairly down-to-earth survey of the theory of elliptic curves, with special emphasis on stating the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture and explaining the various invariants that enter into it, and in particular how this turns out to be related to Random Matrix Theory.
