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 preceded by a "Lecture 0" on background material. In the remaining two lectures, we discuss more recent… Expand

A family of elliptic curves of large rank
Abstract Fix a finite field k, a positive integer d relatively prime to the characteristic of k, and an element a of k. In this article we study the elliptic curve E with equation x ( x − 1 ) ( y − aExpand
If Riemann’s Zeta Function is True, it Contradicts Zeta’s Dirichlet Series, Causing "Explosion". If it is False, it Causes Unsoundness.
Riemann's "analytic continuation" produces a second definition of the Zeta function, that Riemann claimed is convergent throughout half-plane $s \in \mathbb{C}$, $\text{Re}(s)\le1$, (except atExpand
Propositional Logic Applied to Three Contradictory Definitions of the Zeta Function, and to Conditionally Convergent Series
The paper discusses the following contradictions: <br><br>(1) Contradictory definitions of the Zeta function. These three definitions of the Zeta function contradict each other: the Dirichlet series,Expand

Let $\mathbb{F}_q$ denote a finite field of characteristic $p \geq 5$ and let $d = q+1$. Let $E_d$ denote the elliptic curve over the function field $\mathbb{F}_{q^2}(t)$ defined by the equation \$y^2Expand
Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) Renormalization is a Logical Paradox, Zeta Function Regularization is Logically Invalid, and Both are Mathematically Invalid
Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) renormalizaion is a paradox. It uses the Euler-Mascheroni constant, which is defined by a conditionally convergent series. But Riemann's series theorem proves that anyExpand
