### $S$-Tate-Shafarevich groups of elliptic curves

Let $S$ be a finite set of places of a number field $k$ and let $E$ be an elliptic curve over $k$. Define the ''$S$-Tate-Shafarevich group" of $E$ to be
$$Ш(E,S) = \ker\left(H^1(k,E) \to \prod_{v ...

### The exponent of Ш of y^2 = x^3 + px, where p is a Fermat prime

For $d$ a non-zero integer, let $E_d$ be the elliptic curve
$$
E_d \colon y^2 = x^3+dx.
$$
When we let $d$ be $p = 2^{2^k}+1$, for $k \in \{1,2,3,4\}$, sage tells us that, conditionally on BSD,
$$
\# ...

### Why should I believe in the Siegel's and Hasse's rationale ?

Hello everyone,
I was deeply attracted by the Hasse and Siegel's theorems while studying $p$-adic analysis. While reading a paper B.J. Birch and H.P.F. Swinnerton-Dyer - Notes on elliptic curves. I, ...

### What's the Hilbert class field of an elliptic curve?

My question points in a direction similar to Qiaochu's, but it's not the same (or so I think). Let me provide you with a little bit of background first.
Let E be an elliptic curve defined over some ...
