An elliptic curve E over Q is an equation of
the form y 2 = x 3 + ax + b, where a; b 2 Q and
(E) = 16(4a 3 + 27b 2 ) 6= 0, along with a
point O at in nity.
Example: The graph of y 2 = x 3 x over R:
Reducing the equation modulo a prime p gives
a curve ~
E over Fp . The reduced curve can be
non-singular { good reduction
have a node { multiplicative reduction
