Title: Modular Forms, Elliptic Curves and Galois Representations.
Speaker: Dr. Aftab Pande Cornell University
Date: 23 July 2008
Time: 4.00 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Hall - III, Dept. of Mathematics

I will give a brief overview of Wiles’ proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem, and explain the connection between modular forms and elliptic curves via Galois representations e.g. the Taniyama-Shimura conjecture. In the second half, I’ll explain some recent results on p-adic modular forms and deformations of Galois representations. If time permits, I’ll outline a future project on ranks of elliptic curves.
