talks
this is a loose list of talks given at various occasions for various publics. all in pdf.
in july 2012, i gave a series of lectures at the iwasawa conference in heidelberg entitled "an overview of some topics in iwasawa theory".
here is a talk on the birch and swinnertondyer conjecture that i gave at the open university in january 12.
during a cold, snowy, but very pleasant week in montréal in 10, i gave a talk with the title 'why iwasawa theorists need padic Lfunctions'. that was not my choice of title and the task was not an easy one. so don't expect too much. moreover, i said many things that are not on the slides.
in spring 08, i spend a wonderful week in barcelona talking about iwasawa theory of elliptic curves. i have never got around to scan the notes, but i hope to do so at some point. meanwhile i point here to the sage worksheets that i used in the little presentation in the end.
in southampton in 07, i gave a undergraduate seminar talk about elliptic curve cryptography.
half of a talk (the first part was oldfashined blackboard presentation) in banff in 07 about shark. i gave more or less the same talk in leiden, too. contains examples of commands in sage
a very short presentation of a picture about selfpoints in basel in 07.
at the open day 07 in nottingham, i had to present the number theory group. don't think this is of interest to anyone.
again in 07, i gave a lecture in les diablerets winter school on the computation of heegner points. in french. contains sage commands.
this is a talk that I present usually at the end of the 'further number theory' lectures. it discusses some open and some solved problems in number theory.
