The year 2022 marks the centenary of Mordell’s 1922 paper “On the Rational Solutions of the Indeterminate Equations of the Third and Fourth Degrees”, in which Mordell both established the foundational result in the arithmetic of elliptic curves (finite generation of rational points), and proposed what later became Mordell’s Conjecture (and subsequently Faltings’ Theorem).
In recognition of this anniversary, this conference will be a celebration of all aspects of the arithmetic of elliptic curves.
