Explicit Second p-Descent on Elliptic Curves

  • One of the fundamental motivating problems in arithmetic geometry is to understand the set V (k) of rational points on an algebraic variety V defined over a number field k. When V = E is an elliptic curve, this set has a natural structure as a finitely generated abelian group (the Mordell-Weil group). The problem then becomes how to determine it in practice.
