What is Elliptic Curve? What do elliptic curves look like? Basically it is plan algebraic curve that describes a type of cubic curve with two variables. Does this sound hard? Well it is actually the most powerful yet least understood type of curve.

Well this course will let you know all about Elliptic Curves. The main purpose is to prove Mazur’s theorem. You will also know about abelian varieties, moduli of elliptic curves.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
