Towards the construction of elliptic curves over ℚ with high rank and a point of order 5

Fahd M. Alshammari

ABSTRACT:     By representing a genus one curve as a plane curve with five double points, we are able to construct a 3-parameter family of genus one curves over ℚ with Jacobians having a torsion subgroup isomorphic to Z5. This leads, by specializing the parameters, to elliptic curves over ℚ of the Mordell-Weil group with high rank and with a torsion subgroup isomorphic to mathbbZ5. We also show this family contains as a subfamily the principal homogeneous space parameterizing elliptic curves with a rational point of order 5, namely X1(5). We explicitly describe these families by equations in the Weierstrass form.
