Modular parametrization of elliptic curves over \(\QQ\)#
By the work of Taylor–Wiles et al. it is known that there is a surjective morphism
from the modular curve \(X_0(N)\), where \(N\) is the conductor of \(E\). The map sends the cusp \(\infty\) to the origin of \(E\).
EXAMPLES:
sage: phi = EllipticCurve('11a1').modular_parametrization()
sage: phi
Modular parameterization
from the upper half plane
to Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 - x^2 - 10*x - 20 over Rational Field
sage: phi(0.5+CDF(I))
(285684.320516... + 7.0...e-11*I : 1.526964169...e8 + 5.6...e-8*I : 1.00000000000000)
sage: phi.power_series(prec = 7)
(q^-2 + 2*q^-1 + 4 + 5*q + 8*q^2 + q^3 + 7*q^4 + O(q^5),

Bases:
object
This class represents the modular parametrization of an elliptic curve
\[\phi_E: X_0(N) \rightarrow E.\]Evaluation is done by passing through the lattice representation of \(E\).
EXAMPLES:
sage: phi = EllipticCurve('11a1').modular_parametrization() sage: phi Modular parameterization from the upper half plane to Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 - x^2 - 10*x - 20 over Rational Field
- curve()#
Return the curve associated to this modular parametrization.
EXAMPLES:
sage: E = EllipticCurve('15a') sage: phi = E.modular_parametrization() sage: phi.curve() is E True
- map_to_complex_numbers(z, prec=None)#
Evaluate
self
at a point \(z \in X_0(N)\) where \(z\) is given by a representative in the upper half plane, returning a point in the complex numbers.All computations are done with
prec
bits of precision. Ifprec
is not given, use the precision of \(z\). Use self(z) to compute the image of z on the Weierstrass equation of the curve.EXAMPLES:
sage: # needs sage.symbolic sage: E = EllipticCurve('37a'); phi = E.modular_parametrization() sage: x = polygen(ZZ, 'x') sage: tau = (sqrt(7)*I - 17)/74 sage: z = phi.map_to_complex_numbers(tau); z 0.929592715285395 - 1.22569469099340*I sage: E.elliptic_exponential(z) (...e-16 - ...e-16*I : ...e-16 + ...e-16*I : 1.00000000000000) sage: phi(tau) (...e-16 - ...e-16*I : ...e-16 + ...e-16*I : 1.00000000000000)
- power_series(prec=20)#
Return the power series of this modular parametrization.
The curve must be a minimal model. The prec parameter determines the number of significant terms. This means that X will be given up to O(q^(prec-2)) and Y will be given up to O(q^(prec-3)).
OUTPUT: A list of two Laurent series
[X(x),Y(x)]
of degrees -2, -3 respectively, which satisfy the equation of the elliptic curve. There are modular functions on \(\Gamma_0(N)\) where \(N\) is the conductor.The series should satisfy the differential equation
\[\frac{\mathrm{d}X}{2Y + a_1 X + a_3} = \frac{f(q)\, \mathrm{d}q}{q}\]where \(f\) is
self.curve().q_expansion()

The following should give 0, but only approximately:
sage: q = X.parent().gen() sage: E.defining_polynomial()(X,Y,1) + O(q^11) == 0 True
Note that below we have to change variable from \(x\) to \(q\):
sage: a1,_,a3,_,_ = E.a_invariants() sage: f = E.q_expansion(17) sage: q = f.parent().gen() sage: f/q == (X.derivative()/(2*Y+a1*X+a3)) True
