Number Theory Seminar

The number theory seminar is a forum for talks in various aspects of number theory, arithmetic geometry, cryptography. In 2004-2005 we features special lecture series on abelian varieties and moduli of abelian varieties. Talks of interest in the Computational Algebra Seminar are indicated [CAS] below.
