Computational Algebra Seminar: Lauder -- Elliptic curves and p-adic L-functions

Speaker: Alan Lauder (Oxford)
Title: Elliptic curves and p-adic L-functions
Time & Place: 3:05-4pm, Thursday 14 February, Carslaw 535

I will discuss a p-adic formula for classical Heegner points on
elliptic curves in terms of special values of certain p-adic
L-functions - this is joint work with Henri Darmon and Victor Rotger.
The formula has a natural generalisation which conjecturally yields other 
new types of global points. It was discovered experimentally using the 
Magma computer algebra package.
