Title: Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves
Abstract: I will introduce elliptic curves and explain why they have a group structure. I'll discuss the Mordell-Weil theorem which says that the group of rational points is a finitely generated abelian group. Finally, I'll talk about rational points for other kinds of curves.
