Ruth Moufang Lectures

The Ruth Moufang Lectures is a yearly distinguished lecture series addressing a broad mathematical audience in honour of Ruth Moufang, one of the major figures at Goethe University Frankfurt and a pioneer among women in mathematics. Each year, we will invite a major, up-and-coming international figure working in the area of Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry.

This year’s speaker of 2023 will be Ariane Mézard.

Sarah ZerbesAn introduction to the theory of Euler systems

Abstract: Euler systems are one of the most powerful tools for proving new cases of the Birch–Swinnerton-Dyer and Bloch–Kato conjectures. In my lectures, I will give an introduction to the theory of Euler systems, and give some examples of how to construct and where to find them.
