The Brauer group is an invariant, that can detect arithmetic properties of the underlying variety. In this talk, I will define the Brauer group of a variety, describe it's connection to rational points, and give an algorithm to calculate generators and relations of the q-torsion of the Brauer group of and elliptic curve., where q is prime. This talk will be accessible to all.
