RTG Seminar on Number Theory Seminar

Elliptic curves with prescribed torsion over imaginary quadratic fields
Wednesday, January 13, 2021
2:00-3:50 PM
Virtual Off Campus Location
2pm Pre-talk Title: Torsion subgroups of elliptic curves

Pre-talk Abstract: Torsion subgroups of elliptic curves have been studied extensively in the recent past. Graduate students will be able to review, learn, and/or catch up with the main results and recent developments on this topic.

Main talk Abstract:
A generalization of Mazur's theorem states that there are 26 possibilities for the torsion subgroup of an elliptic curve over a quadratic extension of Q. If G is one of these groups, we count the number of elliptic curves of bounded naive height whose torsion subgroup is isomorphic to G in the case of imaginary quadratic fields.
