Title:  Introduction to the theory of elliptic curves and Iwasawa theory

Abstract: The main part of this talk will be introductory in nature. We will begin with a gentle introduction to the theory of elliptic curves and then discuss some notions in Iwasawa theory. In the last part of the talk, we will discuss the average behaviour of the Iwasawa invariants in different settings. The results that I will discuss in the last part of the talk is joint work with many collaborators.
