Title: Cyclicity of elliptic curves modulo primes in arithmetic progressions (joint work with Yildirim Akbal).

Abstract: Let E be an elliptic curve defined over the rational numbers. We investigate the cyclicity of the group of F_p-rational points of the reduction of E modulo primes in a given arithmetic progression as a special case of Serre's Cyclicity Conjecture.
