Curves with many rational points

Speaker: Dr. Alexei Zaytsev (UCD)

Time: 3:00PM

Date: Wed 8th October 2008

Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room

In this talk we review the basic upper and lower bounds on the number of rational points on curves over finite fields. We also discuss current progress in this area.

(This talk is part of the K-Theory, Quadratic Forms and Number Theory series.)
