will follow the notes (in Norwegian) by Jørgen Rennemo (JR) from last year. The correspondence to Silvermans (SI) book and the plan for my lectures this spring is as follows:
JR ch 2 = SI ch I = 1. lecture this spring
JR ch 3 = SI ch II = 2. lecture this spring
JR ch 4 = SI ch III = 3. and 4. lecture this spring
JR ch 5 = SI ch III = 5. and 6. lecture this spring
JR ch 6 = SI ch V = 7. and 8. lecture this spring
JR ch 7 = SI ch VI = 9. and 10. lecture this spring
As promised, lectures 2 hours a week will start next week:
Wednesday Feb 23. 1415-16 in NHA 1120, and will continue the rest of the semester at this time.
Silverman: The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves GTM 106, Springer.
There is some overlap with MAT 4210; in particular in ch 1-4, 7,9 in the notes of that course.
This semester, this is a reading course, without normal schedule of lectures. Since there is overlap, students are encouraged to follow the lectures in MAT 4210 from the start of the semester.
I offer 2x45 min lectures a week, starting the week of Feb. 21.-25., and suggest that we meet Monday 14. February at kl 11 (in the break of the lectures in MAT 4210) to schedule time and place.
That should also be a good time to organize a student study group to supplement the lectures.
