Linear Combinations of Elliptic Logarithms

In this chapter we give the analogue for elliptic logarithms of a Baker inequality, proved for elliptic curves with complex multiplication. The first inequality of this type was given by Masser [Mas I]. We shall follow Coates—Lang [CL], giving a stronger one, with a pattern of proof which follows the original Baker arguments more closely, especially in the use of the Kummer theory.
