"Galois theory and the Jugendtraum"

The talk will be a gentle introduction to Galois theory and the problem of abelian extensions of number fields known as Kronecker's Jugendtraum. We also focus on a particular case of this problem which will showcase a remarkable connection with elliptic curves.

"The Birth of Computation"

In 1928, Hilbert posed the Entscheidungsproblem, which is informally stated as follows: "Given a mathematical statement, is there a well-defined procedure by which one can decide whether the statement is true or false?". This is a natural question for mathematicians to ask. Essentially the question asks whether one can solve mathematical problems in some automatic and structured manner, or must we rely on human insight, wit and intuition?
