Title: How explicit is the explicit formula? |
Abstract: Consider an elliptic curve E. The explicit formula for E relates a sum involving the numbers a_{p}(E) to a sum of three quantities, one involving the analytic rank of the curve, another involving the zeros of the L-series of the curve, and the third, a bounded error term. Barry Mazur and I are attempting to see how numerically explicit – for particular examples – we can make each term in this formula. I'll explain this adventure in a bit more detail, show some plots, and explain what they represent. (This is joint work with Barry Mazur). |
