Elliptic Functions

3.5 of 5 stars 3.50  ·  rating details  ·  4 ratings  ·  2 reviews
Elliptic functions parametrize elliptic curves, and the intermingling of the analytic and algebraic-arithmetic theory has been at the center of mathematics since the early part of the nineteenth century. The book is divided into four parts. In the first, Lang presents the general analytic theory starting from scratch. Most of this can be read by a student with a basic know...more

This book gives an overview of the theory of elliptic curves rom a more number-theoretic viewpoint. As such, it is good reading for anyone interesting in applications of elliptic curves to physics, such as integrable models in statistical mechanics and superstring theory. Readers interested in learning the theory in order to apply it to cryptography may be disappointed as the theory of elliptic curves in characteristic p is put in two appendices. The author is well known for his expertise in alg...more

I used results from this book on a term paper I was writing.

Specifically, I used information about Complex Multiplication.

Serge Lang write dense encyclopedic volumes. It is difficult to read, but a great reference. Not the best to learn from.
