Daniel Kohen will speak on

Special points of elliptic curves with additive reduction

Abstract: In this talk we will give a gentle introduction to the classical construction of Heegner points on rational elliptic curves. After reviewing some classical features of these points we will show how to generalize the construction
to include cases where the "Heegner hypothesis" is not satisfied, but in which we still expect to have analogous objects. We will show some very hands-on examples and provide an application for the construction of an anticyclotomic p-adic L-function.
