# (phi, Gamma) module of ordinary elliptic curve

Suppose $E$ is an elliptic curve over $\mathbb{Q}_p$ with good ordinary reduction. Can someone please tell me how to compute the associated $(\phi,\Gamma)$-module of the Tate module of $E$, or give me a reference to where it is computed?

I'm not sure whether this answers your question completely, but you may find Volkov, Maja, Les représentations l-adiques associées aux courbes elliptiques sur Qp. J. Reine Angew. Math. 535 (2001), 65–101. and Volkov, Maja, A class of p-adic Galois representations arising from abelian varieties over Qp. Math. Ann. 331 (2005), no. 4, 889–923. relevant. – Kestutis Cesnavicius Aug 4 '12 at 7:09
You beat me to it by 6 minutes. – Chandan Singh Dalawat Aug 4 '12 at 7:17
The references above will (I think) give you the corresponding filtered $\phi$-module, but not the $(\phi,\Gamma)$-module. – Laurent Berger Aug 4 '12 at 16:25

If your elliptic curve has good ordinary reduction, then the attached Galois representation is reducible : it is an extension of $\eta_2$ by $\eta_1 \chi$ where $\eta_{1,2}$ are unramified characters and $\chi$ is the cyclotomic character. The $(\phi,\Gamma)$-modules of $\eta_2$ and $\eta_1 \chi$ are easy to compute, so it remains to say something about the extension, ie the upper right star in the matrices of $\phi$ and $\gamma \in \Gamma$. This is less easy; one can't simply write general formulas, but by using the results of Cherbonnier-Colmez (JAMS) and Colmez (eg his paper on trianguline representations), you can say a number of interesting things.
What if we give ourself the knowledge of the j-invariant of E? Do you think that using j_E one can say more about the structure of $T_p(E)$? – Tommaso Centeleghe Feb 27 '13 at 10:23
