On the surjectivity of the Galois representations associated to nonCM elliptic curves
 Canadian Math. Bulletin
"... 1 Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q, of conductor N and without complex multiplication. For any positive integer k, let φk be the Galois representation associated to the kdivision points of E. From a celebrated 1972 result of Serre we know that φl is surjective for any sufficiently large pr ..."

1 Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q, of conductor N and without complex multiplication. For any positive integer k, let φk be the Galois representation associated to the kdivision points of E. From a celebrated 1972 result of Serre we know that φl is surjective for any sufficiently large prime l. In this paper we find conditional and unconditional upper bounds in terms of N for the primes l for which φl is not surjective. 1
Cyclicity of elliptic curves modulo p and elliptic curve analogues of Linnik’s problem
, 2001
"... 1 Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q and of conductor N. For a prime p ∤ N, we denote by E the reduction of E modulo p. We obtain an asymptotic formula for the number of primes p ≤ x for which E(Fp) is cyclic, assuming a certain generalized Riemann hypothesis. The error terms that we get are ..."

1 Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q and of conductor N. For a prime p ∤ N, we denote by E the reduction of E modulo p. We obtain an asymptotic formula for the number of primes p ≤ x for which E(Fp) is cyclic, assuming a certain generalized Riemann hypothesis. The error terms that we get are substantial improvements of earlier work of J.P. Serre and M. Ram Murty. We also consider the problem of finding the size of the smallest prime p = pE for which the group E(Fp) is cyclic and we show that, under the generalized Riemann hypothesis, pE = O � (log N) 4+ε � if E is without complex multiplication, and pE = O � (log N) 2+ε � if E is with complex multiplication, for any 0 < ε < 1. 1

"... 1 Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q and without complex multiplication. Let K be a fixed imaginary quadratic field. We find nontrivial upper bounds for the number of ordinary primes p ≤ x for which Q(πp) = K, where πp denotes the Frobenius endomorphism of E at p. More precisely, �under a ce ..."

1 Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q and without complex multiplication. Let K be a fixed imaginary quadratic field. We find nontrivial upper bounds for the number of ordinary primes p ≤ x for which Q(πp) = K, where πp denotes the Frobenius endomorphism of E at p. More precisely, �under a certain generalized Riemann hypothesis we show that this number is OE x 17 18 log x, and unconditionally. We also prove that the number we show that this number is OE,K � 13 x(log log x) 12 (log x) 25 24 of imaginary quadratic fields K, with − disc K ≤ x and of the form K = Q(πp), is ≫E log log log x for x ≥ x0(E). These results represent progress towards a 1976 LangTrotter conjecture. 1
Cyclicity of CM elliptic curves modulo p
 TRANSACTIONS OF AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY
, 2003
"... Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q and with complex multiplication. For a prime p of good reduction, let E be the reduction of E modulo p. We find the density of the primes p ≤ x for which E(Fp) is a cyclic group. An asymptotic formula for these primes had been obtained conditionally by J.P. ..."

Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q and with complex multiplication. For a prime p of good reduction, let E be the reduction of E modulo p. We find the density of the primes p ≤ x for which E(Fp) is a cyclic group. An asymptotic formula for these primes had been obtained conditionally by J.P. Serre in 1976, and unconditionally by Ram Murty in 1979. The aim of this paper is to give a new simpler unconditional proof of this asymptotic formula, and also to provide explicit error terms in the formula.

This workshop was a unique effort to combine strong, broad impact with a top level technical research program. In order to help raise the profile of active female researchers in number theory and increase their participation in research activities in the field, this event brought together female senior and junior researchers in the field for collaboration. Emphasis was placed on onsite collaboration on open research problems as well as student training. Collaborative group projects introducing students to areas of active research were a key component of this workshop. We would like to thank the following organizations for their support of this workshop: BIRS, PIMS, Microsoft Research, and the Number Theory Foundation. 1 Rationale and Goals Number theory is a fundamental subject with connections to a broad spectrum of mathematical areas including algebra, arithmetic, analysis, topology, cryptography, and geometry. This very active area naturally attracts many female mathematicians. Although the number of female number theorists is steadly growing, there are still relatively few women reaching high profile positions and visibility at international workshops and conferences. The lack of female leaders in the area is an issue that tends to perpetuate itself, since it has repercussions in attracting and training the next generation of female mathematicians.
