Algebraic Function Fi elds and Codes. It is this number theoretic question that is the main subject of Rational Points on Elliptic Curves. After an informal preparatory chapter, the book follows an historical path, beginning with the work of Abel and Gauss on elliptic integrals and elliptic functions. Particular emphasis is placed on function fields over a finite constant field, leading into zeta functions and the Hasse-Weil theorem. Elliptic surfaces and specialization theorems. Modular forms Durham, 1983 , 87-105, Ellis Horwood Ser.
Requiring only a first acquaintance with complex function theory, this book is an ideal introduction to the subject for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and physics, with many exercises with hints scattered throughout the text. Advanced undergraduate students or graduate students with an interest in the applications of mathematics will find this book to be a useful resource. This book, addressed to beginning graduate students, introduces basic theory from a contemporary viewpoint but with an eye to the historical background. Many examples and exercises are included for the reader, and those new to elliptic curves, whether they are graduate students or specialists from other fields, will find this a valuable introduction. Neron's theory of canonical local height functions. This book can be regarded as an introductory text to the author's previous book p-Adic Automorphic Forms on Shimura Varieties.
Height pairing between algebraic cycles. Let and be two points on an elliptic curve with 12 The amazing states that all rational elliptic curves are also modular. This accessibility, the informal writing style, and a wealth of exercises make Rational Points on Elliptic Curves an ideal introduction for students at all levels who are interested in learning about Diophantine equations and arithmetic geometry. He had trouble with reading it. It combines three of the fundamental themes of mathematics: complex function theory, geometry, and arithmetic. Methods for computing integral points points with integral coordinates are given in Gebel et al. Written as a down-to-earth introduction to Shimura varieties, this text includes many examples and applications of the theory that provide motivation for the reader.
Join the initiative for modernizing math education. This book stresses this interplay as it develops the basic theory, providing an opportunity for readers to appreciate the unity of modern mathematics. A Category: Mathematics Page: 100 View: 8257 This book is based on the material presented in four lectures given by J. If two of the intersection points are -, then so is the third. Since this branch of number theory is particularly accessible to computer-assisted calculations, the authors make use of it by approaching the theory under a computational point of view.
The describes how to get from this to the algebraic form of an elliptic curve. Graduate Texts in Mathematics, 106. The many exercises with hints scattered throughout the text give the reader a glimpse of further developments. Elliptic and modular functions for the full modular group. No other book in print treats the basic theory of elliptic curves with only undergraduate mathematics, and no other explains Eichler-Shimura theory in such an accessible manner.
Ono's earlier work, provides a solution to this problem by employing three areas of mathematics: linear algebra, algebraic geometry, and simple algebras. It is only for that reason I give it only 4 stars. Especially everybody concerned with cryptography should know the elements of this theory. Where possible, the output will contain hyperlinks made possible by tools. It is all beautifully presented. In this way it becomes obvious in which respect the book differs from the numerous textbooks on elliptic curves nowadays available. If the underlying of an elliptic curve is algebraically closed, then a straight line cuts an elliptic curve at three points counting multiple roots at points of tangency.
This 1997 book presents an introductory account of the subject in the style of the original discoverers, with references to and comments about more recent and modern developments. In my time, the approach to how we teach math, and write books about it, went through a number of cycles, or trends; some of them now discredited;--or not!? Elliptic surfaces and specialization theorems. The first edition of Introduction to Symplectic Topology was published in 1995. The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves 2nd Edition Joseph H. The contents is kept as elementary as possible. The key to the conjecture lies in elliptic curves, which may appear simple, but arise from some very deep—and often very mystifying—mathematical ideas. A Category: Mathematics Page: N.
To encourage further study, each chapter ends with notes pointing to various related topics that the reader may want pursue. Prerequisite: first graduate courses in algebraic number theory, modular forms, and algebraic geometry. This book presents an introductory account of the subject in the style of the original discoverers, with references to and comments about more recent and modern developments. We will emphasize new tools which generalize to higher dimensional motives. Heegner points on X0 N. Search within a range of numbers Put. Collection of teaching and learning tools built by Wolfram education experts: dynamic textbook, lesson plans, widgets, interactive Demonstrations, and more.
Graduate Texts in Mathematics, 228. Relevant abstract algebra material on group theory and fields can be found in the appendices. The first part grew out of Tate's 1961 Haverford Philips Lectures as an attempt to write something for publication c10sely related to the original Tate notes which were more or less taken from the tape recording of the lectures themselves. The book was the first comprehensive introduction to the subject and became a key text in the area. I would be delighted to receive comments, good or bad, and corrections from readers. Luckily, , , and all have zero.
After an informal preparatory chapter, the book follows an historical path, beginning with the work of Abel and Gauss on elliptic integrals and elliptic functions. This book continues the study of elliptic curves by presenting six important, but somewhat more specialized topics: I. However, the book can be read also by those not interested in any computations. The many beautiful theorems, expressions and identities which appear on almost every page look at Chapter 3 and weep , can only be fully appreciated if the reader has a thorough mathematical grounding.
