The Mordell-Weil Theorem



We consider abelian varieties, defined over essentially global fields, namely, those of §2, §3, §4, Chapter 2. We shall prove an absolute result and a relative one concerning the group of rational points of an abelian variety over such fields, namely:

Theorem 1. Let K be a finitely generated field over the prime field. Let A be an abelian variety defined over K. Then A(K) is finitely generated.
