Location: Virtual

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.
