Competencies / intended learning achievements
Upon successful completion of this module, the students have expanded their knowledge in interdisciplinary mathematics. They have studied elliptic curves, which like a few others, is a class of mathematical objects that is relevant to almost the entire spectrum of mathematics. This ranges from number theory (e.g. Theorem of Fermat) to computational data processing (e.g. encryption algorithms). Exemplarily, the students have learnt how to approach a general problem from a priori very different specialized disciplines (here: using analytic, topological, geometric and/or algebraic methods), and to compare the results across different disciplines. They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them.
