As a few people have requested them, here are the notes from my recent seminar on the Etale Cohomology of elliptic curves. They definitely contain a cheat or two, and aren’t particularly well formatted (and indeed aren’t really the same as what I actually said in the talk), but here they are anyway. I should credit Kolowski’s article “Trying to understand Deligne’s proof of the Weil Conjectures” from which almost all of the material was shamelessly pillaged.
