## Elliptic curves and modular curves

##### Abstract:

In 1972 J.-P. Serre proved an important theorem concerning the Galois action on the torsion points of elliptic curves over number fields. We describe a conjectural uniform version of this theorem and its relation to rational points on modular curves.
