Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

On the rank of 2-primary part of Selmer group of certain elliptic curves
by Kim, Kwang Hyun, Ph.D., City University of New York, 2012, 57; 3541487
Abstract (Summary)

Kolyvagin proved very remarkable results on Mordell-Weil groups and Shafarevich-Tate groups of certain elliptic curves when a given Heegner point P K has infinite order in his series of papers. He also extended his result to odd prime ℓ-primary part of Selmer group of higher rank with the assumption of existence of non-trivial Kolyvagin system. In this thesis, we will follow his Euler system method and verify that his method also works to prove the result on the rank of 2-primary part of Selmer group of higher rank with Strong non-zero conjecture.
