Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

On the torsion structure of elliptic curves over cubic number fields
by Wang, Jian, Ph.D., University of Southern California, 2015, 63; 3722897
Abstract (Summary)

Let E be an elliptic curve defined over a number field K. Then its Mordell-Weil group E(K) is finitely generated: E(K)E(K)tor × Zr. In this thesis, I will discuss the cyclic torsion subgroup of elliptic curves over cubic number fields. I obtained complete results in the prime power case and partial results in the composite case.
