Title:
Growth of torsion groups of elliptic curves upon base change

Abstract of Talk

We study how the torsion of elliptic curves over number fields grows upon base change, and in particular prove various necessary conditions for torsion growth. In particular, we prove that E(K)_{tors}=E(Q)_{tors} for all elliptic curves E defined over Q and all number fields K of degree d, where d is not divisible by a prime greater or equal to 7. This is joint work with Enrique Gonzalez-Jimenez.
