If you have a question about this talk, please contact jhb43. Elliptic Curves can be thought of topologically as a torus, or algebraically as the solutions to a cubic equation in two variables. They have applications across mathematics, but as a number theorist Prof. Buzzard will stress the more arithmetic applications they’ve had in recent times, for example to the congruent number problem and Fermat’s Last Theorem. He will also say something about the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, one of the most important unsolved problems in number theory.
