In the Proof of Mordell Conjecture by Gerd Faltings, it is famous that Parshin constructed curve C_P for each Q-rational point P on the given curve C over Q such that genus of C satisfies g(C) > 0.

Is there anybody that, in case C = E elliptic curve over Q, gives me explicite construction

C_P ---> E

together with Q-rational point P on E?

I am quite anxious for an explicite example of Parshin's construction. Many thanks. Sincerely yours, Pierre MATSUMI

Would your question be answered by Lemma 5.3 in J. S. Milne's text on abelian varieties, and the discussion preceding it? Here is the link: jmilne.org/math/CourseNotes/AV.pdf –  Vesselin Dimitrov Sep 27 '13 at 15:37
