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