On the orders of torsion points of elliptic curves. (Russian) Zbl 0539.14020
Let E be an elliptic curve defined over an algebraic number field K of degree n and class number h. The author concludes from the results of an earlier paper [cf. Zap. Nauchn. Semin. Leningr. Otd. Mat. Inst. Steklova 82, 5-28 (1973; Zbl 0449.14004)] that if E(K) contains all points of second order and one point of fourth order then the K-torsion is bounded by a constant depending only on n and h. Similarly [cf. also Mat. Zametki 14, 827-832 (1973; Zbl 0284.14013)], the author proves that the same holds, if E(K) contains the points of third order.
