The arithmetic of elliptic curves by Joseph H Silverman( Book )

67 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of elliptic curves is distinguished by its long history and by the diversity of the methods that have been used in its study. This book treats the arithmetic theory of elliptic curves in its modern formulation, through the use of basic algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry. The book begins with a brief discussion of the necessary algebro-geometric results, and proceeds with an exposition of the geometry of elliptic curves, the formal group of an elliptic curve, and elliptic curves over finite fields, the complex numbers, local fields, and global fields. Included are proofs of the Mordell-Weil theorem giving finite generation of the group of rational points and Siegel's theorem on finiteness of integral points. For this second edition of The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves, there is a new chapter entitled Algorithmic Aspects of Elliptic Curves, with an emphasis on algorithms over finite fields which have cryptographic applications. These include Lenstra's factorization algorithm, Schoof's point counting algorithm, Miller's algorithm to compute the Tate and Weil pairings, and a description of aspects of elliptic curve cryptography. There is also a new section on Szpiro's conjecture and ABC, as well as expanded and updated accounts of recent developments and numerous new exercises. The book contains three appendices: Elliptic Curves in Characteristics 2 and 3, Group Cohomology, and a third appendix giving an overview of more advanced topics
Diophantus and diophantine equations by I. G Bashmakova( Book )

Rational points on elliptic curves by Joseph H Silverman( Book )

26 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of elliptic curves involves a pleasing blend of algebra, geometry, analysis, and number theory. "Rational Points on Elliptic Curves" stresses this interplay as it develops the basic theory, thereby providing an opportunity for advance undergraduates to appreciate the unity of modern mathematics. At the same time, every effort has been made to use only methods and results commonly included in the undergraduate curriculum. This accessibility, the informal writing style, and a wealth of exercises make "Rational Points on Elliptic Curves" an ideal introduction for students at all levels who are interested in learning about Diophantine equations and arithmetic geometry
A friendly introduction to number theory by Joseph H Silverman( Book )

38 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modular forms and Fermat's last theorem( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book begins with an overview of the complete proof, followed by several introductory chapters surveying the basic theory of elliptic curves, modular functions, modular curves, Galois cohomology, and finite group schemes. Representation theory, which lies at the core of Wiles' proof, is dealt with in a chapter on automorphic representations and the Langlands-Tunnell theorem, and this is followed by in-depth discussions of Serre's conjectures, Galois deformations, universal deformation rings, Hecke algebras, complete intersections, and more, as the reader is led step-by-step through Wiles' proof. In recognition of the historical significance of Fermat's Last Theorem, the volume concludes by looking both forward and backward in time, reflecting on the history of the problem, while placing Wiles' theorem into a more general Diophantine context suggesting future applications. Students and professional mathematicians alike will find this volume to be an indispensable resource for mastering the epoch-making proof of Fermat's Last Theorem."--Jacket
An introduction to mathematical cryptography by Jeffrey Hoffstein( Book )

33 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This self-contained introduction to modern cryptography emphasizes the mathematics behind the theory of public key cryptosystems and digital signature schemes. The book focuses on these key topics while developing the mathematical tools needed for the construction and security analysis of diverse cryptosystems. Only basic filter algebra is requited of the reader; techniques from algebra, number theory, and probability are introduced and developed as required." -- Back cover
Diophantine geometry : an introduction by Marc Hindry( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diophantine geometry is the study of integral and rational solutions to systems of polynomial equations using ideas and techniques from algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry. The ultimate goal is to describe the solutions in terms of geometric invariants of the underlying algebraic variety. This book contains complete proofs of four of the fundamental finiteness theorems in Diophantine geometry."--Jacket
Arithmetic geometry by Gary Cornell( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the result of a conference on arithmetic geometry, held July 30 through August 10, 1984 at the University of Connecticut at Storrs, the purpose of which was to provide a coherent overview of the subject. This subject has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity due in part to Faltings' proof of Mordell's conjecture. Included are extended versions of almost all of the instructional lectures and, in addition, a translation into English of Faltings' ground-breaking paper. ARITHMETIC GEOMETRY should be of great use to students wishing to enter this field, as well as those already working in it. This revised second printing now includes a comprehensive index
An introduction to the theory of numbers by G. H Hardy( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixth edition of the classic undergraduate text in elementary number theory includes a new chapter on elliptic curves and their role in the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, a foreword by Andrew Wiles and extensively revised and updated end-of-chapter notes
The arithmetic of dynamical systems by Joseph H Silverman( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an introduction to the relatively new discipline of arithmetic dynamics. Whereas classical discrete dynamics is the study of iteration of self-maps of the complex plane or real line, arithmetic dynamics is the study of the number-theoretic properties of rational and algebraic points under repeated application of a polynomial or rational function. A principal theme of arithmetic dynamics is that many of the fundamental problems in the theory of Diophantine equations have dynamical analogs. As is typical in any subject combining Diophantine problems and geometry, a fundamental goal is to describe arithmetic properties, at least qualitatively, in terms of underlying geometric structures
Cryptography and lattices : international conference, CaLC 2001, Providence RI, USA, March 29-30, 2001 : revised papers by Joseph H Silverman( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the International Conference on Cryptography and Lattices, CaLC 2001, held in Providence, RI, USA in March 2001. The 14 revised full papers presented together with an overview paper were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. All current aspects of lattices and lattice reduction in cryptography, both for cryptographic construction and cryptographic analysis, are addressed
