Recent advances in the arithmetic of elliptic curves

Colloquium presented by Kartik Prasanna (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor)

In the past few years there have been several spectacular advances in understanding the arithmetic of elliptic curves including results about ranks on average and on the conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer. I will give an introduction to the main problems of interest and survey some of these developments. This talk will be addressed to a general mathematical audience.
