What is ... a Diophantine equation?

This page hosts information on Stefan Keil's talk "What is ... a Diophantine equation?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, January 14, 12:45pm at the BMS Loft at Urania. This talk will help you better understand the talk by Jens Funke, which will start at 2pm.

We will again be ordering delivery pizza. If you would like to order pizza with us, please arrive to the "What is ...?" seminar by 12:30.

Abstract

As a warmup to Professor Funke's lecture, we introduce Diophantine equations and present a famous example of how elliptic curves can be employed in their solution: namely, Fermat's Last Theorem.
