Leiden: Talk by Manjul Bhargava

22-1-2010 (friday)

Title: Binary quartic forms and ranks of elliptic curves
Place: Snellius building (Niels Bohrweg 1, Leiden), room 405
Time:  14:15-16:00
Abstract:
We prove a theorem giving the asymptotic number of binary quartic
forms having bounded invariants; this extends, to the quartic case,
the classical results of Gauss and Davenport in the quadratic and
cubic cases respectively. We use this counting result to prove - among
other things - the boundedness of the average rank of elliptic curves
when ordered by their heights.

ERC Starting grant for Daniel Dadush
26-9-2018

Daniel Dadush (CWI) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 ME for his proposal ‘Towards a Quantitative Theory of Integer Programming’. With this grant, Dadush aims to revolutionize the understanding of integer programming (IP), the most popular method used today for finding optimal solutions to real-world optimization problems.
