Seminar Elliptic Curves
An elliptic curve is a geometric object, which carries a group structure. Elliptic curves arise in many areas of mathematics, and can be studied using methods of algebra, analysis, or topology. The seminar introduces basic aspects of elliptic curves. The later talks discuss relations between elliptic curves and various areas of mathematics like Diophantine equations, complex analysis, and applications to cryptography.
Elemente der Algebra. The class Diophantine Geometry is helpful, but not required.
