Abstract:
Iwasawa theory is a bridge between analytic objects and algebraic objects. We give a friendly introduction to the main conjecture in the ordinary case (and define what 'ordinary' means), and then outline the supersingular (=non-ordinary) theory. The main philosophy of the proof in the supersingular case is to work with a pair of simple objects similar to the ordinary ones.
