I will discuss the recent development and exploitation of connections between the theory of iteration of polynomial maps of the complex numbers, and the arithmetic of elliptic curves. This connection is established via the theory of height functions, which are a powerful tool leading to interesting results in both fields. This talk will assume no prior knowledge of dynamics or number theory and welcomes a general audience.
