The Birch­-Swinnerton Dyer Conjecture and counting elliptic curves of ranks 0 and 1

Colloque par Christopher Skinner (Princeton University)

This colloquium talk will begin with an introduction to the Birch-­­Swinnerton­-Dyer conjecture for elliptic curves -- just curves defined by the equations y^2=x^3+Ax+B -- and then describe recent advances that allow us to prove that lots of elliptic curves have rank zero or one.
