Elliptic Curves and Modular Forms

  • Haruzo Hida
Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


We now describe basics of elliptic curves and modular curves in three steps:
  1. 1.

    as plane curves over a field;

  2. 2.

    as scheme/group functor over a ring;

  3. 3.

    modular forms as functorial rules on modular curves.
