Talk about Elliptic Curves

Elliptic curves are beautiful and useful mathematical objects.  They relate to a wide variety of disciplines, including classification and topology of real curves, elliptic curve cryptography, group theory, Riemann surfaces, and Wiles' and Taylor's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.  We'll do a light survey of whichever topics seem most interesting to the group that shows up.  We can delve more deeply into one subject as time permits.

    I must confess that this was my first meetup and the occasion was everything I expected it to be, plus pizza. Despite arriving late into the event, we were greeted with a warm hospitality. The discourse was in depth and very broad in scope, the subject matter was extremely varied, occasionally leaving me in the dust in more than a few areas, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I would recommend the event to any interested individuals.
