"Chapter 2 – Algebraic curves"

In this first talk of the learning seminar, we will introduce algebraic curves and present basic facts about these curves which are essential in the study of elliptic curves. In particular, we will talk about the divisor group associated to such curves and discuss certain important results such as the Riemann-Roch theorem.

This seminar will be held both online and in person:
