It is shown here how Elliptic Curves over Finite Fields, Local Fields, and Global Fields affect the geometry of the elliptic curves.

Elliptic curves over Q(i)

A study of the diophantine equation v2 =2 u4 − 1 led the authors to consider elliptic curves specifically over Q(i) and to examine the parallels and differences with the classical theory over Q. In

An elliptic analogue of the Franklin-Schneider theorem.

Let p be a Weierstrass elliptic function with algebraic invariants g2 and g3. Let a and b be complex numbers such that a and b are not among the poles of p. A lower bound is given for the

Prime power terms in elliptic divisibility sequences

This work solves the problem when descent via isogeny is possible by giving explicit bounds on the indices of prime power terms in elliptic divisibility sequences associated to points in the image of a nontrivial isogenY by discussing the uniformity of these bounds assuming the Hall-Lang conjecture.

The uniform primality conjecture for elliptic curves

An elliptic divisibility sequence, generated by a point in the image of a rational isogeny, is shown to possess a uniformly bounded number of prime terms. This result applies over the rational

Elliptic Curves and Cryptography

The aim in this section is to summarize just enough of the basic theory of elliptic curve cryptography for cryptographic applications.

Diophantine approximation, irrationality and transcendence

For proving linear independence of real numbers, Hermite [18] considered simultaneous approximation to these numbers by algebraic numbers. The point of view introduced by Siegel in 1929 [34] is dual


The principal aim of the present paper is to provide a new lower bound for linear forms in two p-adic elliptic logarithms. We refine a result due to Remond and Urfels. Our improvement lies in the

Infinite Sums, Diophantine Equations and Fermat’s Last Theorem

Thanks to the results of Andrew Wiles, we know that Fermat’s last theorem is true. As a matter of fact, this result is a corollary of a major result of Wiles: every semi-stable elliptic curve over Q
