The Distribution of 2-Selmer Ranks of Quadratic Twists of Elliptic Curves with Partial Two-Torsion.Lemke Oliver, Robert J.
This paper presents a new result concerning the distribution of 2-Selmer ranks in the quadratic twist family of an elliptic curve over an arbitrary number field K with a single point of order two that does not have a cyclic 4-isogeny defined over its two-division field. We prove that at least half of all the quadratic twists of such an elliptic curve have arbitrarily large 2-Selmer rank, showing t... read more
