Title: Progress on Mazur’s program B
Speaker: David Zureick-Brown
Speaker Info: Emory University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I’ll discuss recent progress on Mazur’s ”Program B” -- the problem of classifying all possibilities for the "image of Galois" for an elliptic curve over Q (equivalently, classification of all rational points on certain modular curves X_H).

This will including my own recent work with Jeremy Rouse which completely classifies the possibilities for the 2-adic image of Galois associated to an elliptic curve over the rationals. I will also discuss a large number of other very recent results by many authors.
