Dr. Mike Miller announced in class last night that in the coming Winter quarter at UCLA Extension he’ll be offering a course on elliptic curves. 

The text for the class will be Rational Points on Elliptic Curves (Springer, Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics) by Joseph H. Silverman and John T. Tate. He expects to follow and rely more on it versus handing out his own specific lecture notes.

He mentioned that while it would suggest a more geometric flavor, which it will certainly have, the class will carry an interesting algebraic component which those not familiar with the topic may not expect.

To register, look for the listing sometime in the coming month or so when the Winter catalog is released.

    Wow, this looks really fun, wish I lived in the area! (Well, Idon’t actually… but if I did live there, I’d want to do this :P)

      If it’s really your cup of tea, I can pass along my Pulse pen notes that I use to record/capture math lectures.

        I probably wouldn’t be much good at following along without the in-person aspect, but thank you! (And I have other classes I should be keeping up with… )
