Description This course note aims to give a basic overview of some of the main
lines of study of elliptic curves, building on the student's knowledge of
undergraduate algebra and complex analysis, and filling in background material
where required (especially in number theory and geometry). Particular aims are
to establish the link between doubly periodic functions, Riemann surfaces of
genus 1, plane cubic curves, and associated Diophantine problems.
