"Mordell-Weil groups of elliptic curves under field extension"
Let E be an elliptic curve defined over the rational field Q with L-function L(E,s). We are interested in studying E(K) as K varies over finite extensions of Q. Analytically this questions translates (under the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture) into when L(E,1,?)=0 for Artin characters ?. For [K:Q]=2, there is an extensive literature on this question. We present our results and conjectures when [K:Q]>2.
