Wild 2-adic things on elliptic curves are diabolical
Linfoot Number Theory Seminar
10th March 2021, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Virtual Seminar, https://bristol-ac-uk.zoom.us/j/94787629685
I will talk about Galois representations attached to elliptic curves over local fields. In particular, I will explain what it means that some of these objects are wild, and why some of these wild objects are diabolical, with lots of examples.
