Torsion of rational elliptic curves over quadratic fields
Let $$E$$E be an elliptic curve defined over $${\mathbb {Q}}$$Q. We study the relationship between the torsion subgroup $$E({\mathbb {Q}})_{{{\mathrm{tors}}}}$$E(Q)tors and the torsion subgroup

On the ubiquity of trivial torsion on elliptic curves
The purpose of this paper is to give a down-to-earth proof of the well-known fact that a randomly chosen elliptic curve over the rationals is most likely to have trivial torsion.


A complete diophantine characterization of the rational torsion of an elliptic curve
We give a complete characterization for the rational torsion of an elliptic curve in terms of the (non-)existence of integral solutions of a system of diophantine equations.
Computing the Rational Torsion of an Elliptic Curve Using Tate Normal Form
It is a classical result (apparently due to Tate) that all elliptic curves with a torsion point of order n(4⩽n⩽10, or n=12) lie in a one-parameter family. However, this fact does not appear to have
Simplest Cubic Number Fields
In this paper we intend to show that certain integers do not occur as the norms of principal ideals in a family of cubic fields studied by Cohn, Shanks, and Ennola. These results will simplify the
Abelian L-adic representation and elliptic curves
This classic book contains an introduction to systems of l-adic representations, a topic of great importance in number theory and algebraic geometry, as reflected by the spectacular recent
Torsion subgroups of elliptic curves in short Weierstrass form
In a recent paper by M. Wieczorek, a claim is made regarding the possible rational torsion subgroups of elliptic curves E/Q in short Weierstrass form, subject to certain inequalities for their
The simplest cubic fields
Abstract. The cyclic cubic fields generated by x3 = ax2 + (a + 3)x + 1 are studied in detail. The regulators are relatively small and are known at once. The class numbers are al2 2 ways of the form A
Diophantine analysis and torsion on elliptic curves
In a recent paper of Bennett and the author, it was shown that the elliptic curve defined by y2 = x3 + Ax + B, where A and B are integers, has no rational points of finite order if A is sufficiently
Rational isogenies of prime degree
In this table, g is the genus of Xo(N), and v the number of noncuspidal rational points of Xo(N) (which is, in effect, the number of rational N-isogenies classified up to "twist"). For an excellent
