By Exercise 2.6 this is equivalent to that E τ has endomorphism ring larger than Z . An elliptic curve with this property is called an elliptic curve with complex multiplication . Viewing j as a function on the set of isomorphism classes of elliptic curves, the previous corrollary says that the value of j at the isomorphism class of an elliptic curve with complex multiplication is an algebraic integer. Remark 10.3 . The classical Kronecker Theorem asserts that any finite abelian exten- sion of Q with abelian Galois group can be obtained by joining roots of unity to Q . Observe that a n th root of unity is the value of the function f ( z ) = e 2 πiz/n on Z . Let K be an imaginary quadratic extension of Q and let a be an ideal in the ring of integers of K . Then the set j ( a ) generates a maximal non-ramified extension of the field K with abelian Galois group. This is the celebrated ”J¨ugendtraum” of Leopoldwith abelian Galois group....
