Elliptic Curves over Function Fields
by Douglas Ulmer
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 72
These are the notes from a course of five lectures at the 2009 Park City Math Institute. The focus is on elliptic curves over function fields over finite fields. In the first three lectures, we explain the main classical results (mainly due to Tate) on the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture in this context and its connection to the Tate conjecture about divisors on surfaces.

This is an introduction to the theory of Shimura varieties, or, in other words, to the arithmetic theory of automorphic functions and holomorphic automorphic forms. Because of their brevity, many proofs have been omitted or only sketched.

The theory of Irregularities of Distribution began as a branch of Uniform Distributions, but is of independent interest. In these lectures the author restricted himself to distribution problems with a geometric interpretation.

This is a compilation of exercises, worked examples and key references that the author compiled in order to help readers learn their way around fermionic Fock space. The text is suitable for use by graduate students with an interest in number theory.
