---|

Recent work of Nekovar makes it possible to produce families of
examples of elliptic curves In this talk I will discuss a proof of Nekovar's theorem using the ideas introduced in Barry Mazur's lecture. I will also discuss some root number calculations and use them to give concrete examples of large Selmer growth. This work is joint with Barry Mazur. |
