INVITATION FOR RIST POPULAR TALK

You are cordially invited to attend the monthly popular talk series organized by the RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (RIST), IMPHAL

Topic:

Rational points on elliptic curves and the Main conjecture

Abstract:

The question regarding the existence of points with rational coordinates on certain curves known as elliptic curves is a very old one, and still unresolved. We will say a little bit about how these elliptic curves arise naturally in many other problems. Then we will explain the problems and finally talk about some progress made in understanding one of these problems. In the later part of the talk, we will say about the Main conjecture of Iwasawa theory and how it helps in shedding some light to some of these problems.
