“Congruent numbers, Heegner method and BSD conjecture”

Abstract
The “Congruent number problem” is an old unsolved major problem in number theory. In this seminar we provide a brief introduction to it. We will start from the original version of the problem, and lots of objects will be introduced during the talk. If time permits, some current progresses related to the BSD conjecture will also be described.
