Generators are found for the group of rational points on the title curve for all primes p 5 (mod 8) less than 1,000. The rank is always I in accordance with conjectures of Selmer and Mordell. Some of the generators are rather large.

### On a class of elliptic curves with rank at most two

In this note we consider the elliptic curves y 2 = x 3 + px defined over Q for primes p satisfying p ? 1 (mod 8), and review some of their properties. We then compute and list (in the supplement)

### The Group of Rational Points

• Mathematics
• 1992
In this chapter we will prove Mordell’s theorem that the group of rational points on a non-singular cubic is finitely generated. There is a tool used in the proof called the height. In brief, the

### Second p-descents on elliptic curves

An algorithm is described which computes the set of D in the Shafarevich-Tate group such that pD = C and obtains explicit models for these D as curves in projective space, which leads to a practical algorithm for performing explicit 9-descents on elliptic curves over Q.

### Arithmetic on curves

We are constantly discovering new ways of understanding algebraic curves and their arithmetic properties. Questions about ‘rational points’—the interplay of arithmetic and algebra—have fascinated

### Three points of great height on elliptic curves

• Mathematics
• 1993
We give three elliptic curves whose generators have great height, demonstrating along the way a moderately efficient method for finding such points.

### Elliptic Curves over Local Fields

In this chapter we study the group of rational points on an elliptic curve defined over a field which is complete with respect to a discrete valuation. We start with some basic facts concerning

### On Diophantine equations and nontrivial Racah coefficients

Some families of zeros of weight‐1 6j coefficients are given, each in terms of four parameters. They arise from a geometrical investigation of certain Diophantine equations. Some general remarks on

### The Formal Group of an Elliptic Curve

Let E be an elliptic curve. In this chapter we study an “infinitesimal” neighborhood of E centered at the origin O.

### Ranks of elliptic curves y^2=x^3\pm4px

Suppose that y 2 = x 3 +4px, y 2 = x 3 4px are elliptic curves where p is an odd prime. Then we treat ranks of these two curves according to the condition of prime number p. Mathematics Subject
