On the Frequency of Finitely Anomalous Elliptic Curves

Abstract
Given an elliptic curve E over Q, we can then consider E over the finite field Fp. If Np is the number of points on the curve over Fp, then we define ap(E) = p+1-Np. We say primes p for which ap(E) = 1 are anomalous. In this paper, we search for curves E so that this happens for only a finite number of primes. We call such curves finitely anomalous. This thesis deals with the frequency of their occurrence and finds several examples.
