We are running a working number theory group seminar. The
current group members are:

Lenny Fukshansky (CMC)

David Krumm (CMC)

Hiren Maharaj

Michael Mei (Pomona)

John Shaughnessy (CMC)

Xun Sun (CGU)

Arvind Suresh (CMC)

The current topic for the Spring 2014 semester is Lattices and Codes. The seminar is currently led by

Hiren Maharaj and our goal is to get through the first two chapters of Ebeling's book.

The topic for the Fall 2013 semester was Rational Points on Curves.

The seminar was led by David Krumm, and the goal was to learn some basic arithmetic geometry with a potential view

towards the paper of McCallum and Poonen on the method of Chabauty and Coleman.

Here is some of the reading we have done:

1. Mordell's paper on height bounds for points on conics

2. Legendre's theorem on zeros of ternary quadratic forms

3. Cassels' theorem on small zeros of quadratic forms

The topic for the Spring 2013 semester was Introduction to the Arithmetic of Function Fields.

The seminar was led by Hiren Maharaj, who took us through parts of Stichtenoth's famous book.
