Complex Tori and Elliptic Curves

Gil Moss

I will introduce doubly period functions on the complex plane and the Weierstrass-P function and its derivative. Using the Weierstrass-P, we can describe the space of elliptic functions for a given torus, and parametrize the torus itself with a curve in the projective plane: an elliptic curve. If time remains, I will point out how this unearths a modular form.
