Elliptic curves and modular curves

René Schoof (Rome)

Abstract: In 1972 J.-P. Serre proved an important theorem concerning the Galois action on the torsion points of elliptic curves over number fields. We describe a uniform version of this conjecture and its relation to rational points on modular curves.
