Algebra Seminar
Torsion Subgroups of Elliptic Curves Over Infinite Extensions
Harris Daniels (Amherst College)

Wednesday, November 13, 2019
11:15am – 12:05pm

Storrs Campus
Monteith 313

Recently, there has been an effort to study the torsion subgroups of elliptic curves defined over $$\mathbb{Q}$$, base-extended to infinite extensions of $$\mathbb{Q}$$. In this talk, we will start with a survey of the necessary background material and introduce a class of infinite extensions where this question is well-defined. Afterwards, we will give a survey of what is known and the techniques used to prove these results. If time permits, we will discuss an ongoing project.
