Abstract: In this talk, I will first explain the difference between ordinary and supersingular elliptic curves.  There are some fascinating open conjectures about supersingular curves and more generally Newton polygons of curves.  Finally, I will describe some of my recent work about curves whose Newton polygons contain many slopes of 1/2.  Some of this talk includes joint work with Li, Mantovan, and Tang.
