This seminar is aimed at second year master students, with a good background in number theory and geometry. It will help them working on a master thesis.
About half of the course will take place in the form of a seminar, where those who wish to obtain credit points will give lectures.
The topics treated will depend on the participants. Those interested in participating should already contact the teachers during the Fall semester. It would be nice if we could build on the course of the Fall semester.
Prerequisites: a first course in Algebraic Geometry and in Algebraic Number Theory are a must. The courses
Elliptic Curves’ andAdvanced Algebraic Geometry’ from the Fall of 2012 are recommended.
2 hours lecture, 13 weeks
No final exam, but active participation is required. Grade: Pass/Fail.
