Computing the Rank of Elliptic Curves over Number Fields

  • Published online: 01 February 2010

This paper describes an algorithm of 2-descent for computing the rank of an elliptic curve without 2-torsion, defined over a general number field. This allows one, in practice, to deal with fields of degree from 1 to 5.
