A Panorama in Number Theory or The View from Baker's Garden: Modular Forms, Elliptic Curves and the ABC -Conjecture

  title={A Panorama in Number Theory or The View from Baker's Garden: Modular Forms, Elliptic Curves and the ABC -Conjecture},
  author={D. Goldfeld},
The ABC–conjecture was first formulated by David Masser and Joseph Osterlé (see [Ost]) in 1985. Curiously, although this conjecture could have been formulated in the last century, its discovery was based on modern research in the theory of function fields and elliptic curves, which suggests that it is a statement about ramification in arithmetic algebraic geometry. The ABC–conjecture seems connected with many diverse and well known problems in number theory and always seems to lie on the… Expand
Lecture on the abc Conjecture and Some of Its Consequences
The abc conjecture was proposed in the 1980s by J. Oesterle and D.W. Masser. This simple statement implies a number of results and conjectures in number theory. We state this conjecture and list aExpand
In this dissertation we will prove some ABC Theorems, namely for relatively prime by pairs p-adic entire functions in one variable, for p-adic meromorphic functions in several variables withoutExpand
On the Height Conjecture for Algebraic Points on Curves Defined over Number Fields
We study the basic height conjecture for points on curves defined over number fields and show: On any algebraic curve defined over a number field the set of algebraic points contains an unrestrictedExpand
Resultant and conductor of geometrically semi-stable self maps of the projective line over a number field or function field
We study the minimal resultant divisor of self-maps of the projective line over a number field or a function field and its relation to the conductor. The guiding focus is the exploration of aExpand
Deitmar , Anton and Diamantis , Nikolaos ( 2009 ) Automorphic forms of higher order
In this paper a theory of Hecke operators for higher order modular forms is established. The definition of higher order forms is extended beyond the realm of parabolic invariants. A canonical innerExpand
Torsion homology growth and cycle complexity of arithmetic manifolds
Let M be an arithmetic hyperbolic 3-manifold, such as a Bianchi manifold. We conjecture that there is a basis for the second homology of M, where each basis element is represented by a surface ofExpand
ABC Conjecture–An Ambiguous Formulation
Due to exist forevermore uncorrelated limits of values of real number e≥0, enable ABC conjecture to be able to be both proved and negated. In this article, we find a representative equalityExpand
Automorphic forms of higher order
In this paper a theory of Hecke operators for higher order modular forms is established. The definition of cusp forms and attached L-functions is extended beyond the realm of parabolic invariants.Expand
On The Torsion Homology of Non-Arithmetic Hyperbolic Tetrahedral Groups
Numerical data concerning the growth of torsion in the first homology of non-arithmetic hyperbolic tetrahedral groups are collected. The data provide support the speculations of Bergeron andExpand
Higher order invariants in the case of compact quotients
We present the theory of higher order invariants and higher order automorphic forms in the simplest case, that of a compact quotient. In this case, many things simplify and we are thus able to proveExpand


Modular Elliptic Curves and Fermat′s Last Theorem(抜粋) (フェルマ-予想がついに解けた!?)
When Andrew John Wiles was 10 years old, he read Eric Temple Bell’s The Last Problem and was so impressed by it that he decided that he would be the first person to prove Fermat’s Last Theorem. ThisExpand
Wieferich's criterion and the abc-conjecture
Abstract We show that the abc-conjecture of Masser and Oesterle implies that there are infinitely many primes for which 2p−1 n= 1 (mod p2). More precisely, we show that there are at least O(log X)Expand
The work of kolyvagin on the arithmetic of elliptic curves
The main reference is the paper “The work of Kolyvagin on the arithmetic of elliptic curves”(1989) by Karl Rubin. Let E be an elliptic curve defined over Q with conductor N , and fix a modularExpand
Bounds for the order of the Tate-Shafarevich group
In this paper we show, over Q, with classical conjectures like Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer, the equivalence for modular elliptic curves between the following two conjectures: relating the order 1 ID ofExpand
Effective bounds on the size of the Tate-Shafarevich group
Throughout this paper we will work over Q, although our methods generalize quite naturally to any number field. Consider an elliptic curve E defined over Q. We use the following notation: XE denotesExpand
The abc Conjecture
Let’s start with a theorem about polynomials. You probably think that one knows everything about polynomials. Most mathematicians would think that, including myself. It came as a surprise when R. C.Expand
On the Passage From Local to Global in Number Theory
Would a reader be able to predict the branch of mathematics that is the subject of this article if its title had not included the phrase “in Number Theory”? The distinction “local” versus “global”,Expand
The analytic order of III for modular elliptic curves
In this note we extend the computations described in [4] by computing the analytic order of the Tate-Shafarevich group III for all the curves in each isogeny class; in [4] we considered the strongExpand
A family of semistable elliptic curves with large Tate-Shafarevitch groups
We present a family of elliptic curves defined over the rationals Q such that each curve admits only good or multiplicative reduction and for every integer n there is a curve whose Tate-ShafarevitchExpand
Properties of Eisenstein series formed with modular symbols
In this work a new kind of non-holomorphic Eisenstein series, first introduced by Goldfeld, is studied. For an arbitrary Fuchsian group of the first kind we fix a holomorphic cusp form and considerExpand
