### BSD leading-term coefficient in terms of places without distinction

After reading this blog post, I learned the BSD conjectural formula for the coefficient of the leading term $a_0$ of the L-function of an elliptic curve $E$, namely  a_0 \stackrel{?}{=} ...

### BSD conjecture for X_0(17)

I use Magma to calculate the L-value, yields E:=EllipticCurve([1, -1, 1, -1, 0]); E; Evaluate(LSeries(E),1),RealPeriod(E),Evaluate(LSeries(E),1)/RealPeriod(E); Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + x*y + ...

### A generalisation of the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture

We know that the grand Riemann hypothesis is a generalisation of the Riemann hypothesis and Generalized Riemann hypothesis. My question is about the existence of a similar generalisation of the Birch ...

### Deducing BSD from Gross-Zagier and Kolyvagin

Does anyone know which papers deduce BSD for elliptic curves $E/\mathbb{Q}$ of rank 0 or 1 from the papers by Gross and Zagier and Kolyvagin? If I understand these theories right, there is still a ...

### Power series expansions of $L$-series

Let $\zeta_K(s)$ be the Dedekind zeta function for a number field $K$. We can understand the first non-vanishing coefficient of its Laurent series via the class number formula. Is anything ...

### Is there a “Basic Number Theory” for elliptic curves?

Tate's thesis showed how to profitably analyze $\zeta$ functions of number fields in terms of adelic points on the multiplicative group. In particular, combining Fourier analysis and topology, Tate ...
I suspect that they knew that the $L-$function is defined only for $Re(s) \gt 3/2$. Did they attempt to evaluate the $L-$function at $s=1$ by plugging $s=1$ in the infinite product \$\prod_p ...
