# ecdata release notes (since 2001)
## Last major update: 2019-07-22
### 2021
- 1 March 2021: updated paricurves files with the new gens from
updated allgens files.
### 2020
- 27 November 2020: updated allgens files with Minkowski-reduced
generators mod torsion, of minimal naive height mod torsion. Thanks
to R. Rathbun.
### 2019
- 26 November 2019: updated opt_man files after reaching conductor
400000 in optimality checking.
- 28 October 2019: updated opt_man files after reaching conductor
370000 in optimality checking.
Added The Artistic License 2.0 to the repository.
- 23 October 2019: replaced all old torsion growth files with new
ones, now split into conductor ranges of 10000 as with the other
files (as well as by degree), and extended to degree 23. The
polynomials defining the extension fields are all polredabs-ed, and
the new torsion structure over these fields has been independently
checked (by me). All the data was provided by Enrique Gonzalez
Jimenez and Filip Najman.
- 11 September 2019: added one new isogeny class (with just 1 curve)
406598c, relabelling the old 406598c to 406598d. Checked that there
are no more missing curve which either have |a4|, |a6|<=100 or which
are in Stein-Watkins. Thanks to Bill Allombert for spotting this
omission.
- 2 September 2019: replaced the optimality/* files with opt_man/*
files giving more information about optimality and the Manin
constant, documented in a rewritten doc/manin.txt.

two 2-isogenous curves for which the optimal curves was #2 (and now
is #1). Classes: 457226e, 461342l, 463834b
- 19 August 2019: switched labels of 10 pairs of curves in classes of
two 2-isogenous curves for which the optimal curves was #2 (and now
is #1). Classes: 235470bb, 235746u, 258482a, 265706a, 333270bu,

24 of conductor 122010) which were unsaturated. Files
affected are allgens.{5,12}*, paricurves.{5,12}* but NOT
the allbsd or allbigsha files which are unchanged (they
already had the correct regulators).

- 20/06/05: Added all data for 60000-69999.
- 09/06/05:
- Added all data for 50000-59999.
- renamed files e.g. curves.00000-09999 etc; no changes to

- 05/05/05: corrected generators for 14 curves in range 30001-40000
which were not saturated, with consequent corrections to
allgens.30001-40000, allbsd.30001-40000,
allbigsha.30001-40000 and shas table. (None of these were
optimal curves so gens.* unchanged)
- 03/5/05: corrections to files allgens.30001-40000, gens.20001-30000,
allgens.20001-30000, gens.30001-40000, allbsd.00001-10000,
allgens.00001-10000 thanks to Geoff Bailey. (Some duplications, and
some wrong numbering of curves in an isogeny class).
- 26/4/05: added curve 25350III2 which had been missed
- 22/4/05:
- added data for range 30001-40000

curves extended from 8000 to 11000 (extended to 12000 on 13/02/05).
Swapped the two curves in classes 15180,15624,15744 as the
conditionally optimal one was second not first.
### 2004
- 21/6/04: added data for range 20001-25000 + certification of generators
for all curves so far
- 9/3/04: corrections for 15810U3 -- previous generator was
3*generator; so |Sha|=9 not 1.
### 2003
- 4/4/03: added data for range 17001-20000.
- 12/2/03: added data for range 16001-17000.
- 17/1/03: added data for range 15001-16000.
### 2002
- 25/10/02: corrected torsion order for 4830N4 in allcurves.1-8000
mention 2 new curves of rank 3 in INDEX file
- 8/10/02: Added data for the range 12001-15000, with the same status as
for the range 8001-12000 detailed below (except that Mark Watkins has
not -- yet -- covered this range). [He has now: 25/10/02.]
- 14/1/02: Curves in classes 8160R, 8585C, 11024B reordered. For
these levels the first curve in each class is guaranteed
Gamma_0(N)-optimal. For other levels up to 12000 where there is no
guarantee, our first curve is the one which has been /conditionally/
proved optimal by Mark Watkins. It is now the case that for all
levels in the range 8001-12000 the first curve in each class is
either proved optimal, or at least agrees with Mark Watkins's
conditional list of optimal curves. The former holds whenever the
degree of the modular parametrization is given in the curves file.
### 2001
- 12/12/01: for around 10% of classes in the range 8201-9000 the
ordering has been changed. In the new order the first curve in each
class is more likely (though not guaranteed) to be optimal. This
change makes this range compatible with the range 9001-12000 in that
the same strategy is used throughout for finding a curve from each
newform.
- November 2001: The tables are extended to level (conductor) 12000.
- For levels up to 8000 fuller data exists, including determination
of the optimal curve in each isogeny class and the degree of the
modular parametrization. The numbering of the curves in each class
(with the optimal curve #1, except for class 990H) may be taken as
canonical and standard in this range.
- For levels 8001-12000 we give all curves in each isogeny class, but
the first curve is not known to be optimal (unless the class only
contains one curve, of course). The numbering of the curves in
each class containing more than one curve should NOT be taken as
canonical and standard: it will change if the optimal curve turns
out to be not the currently labelled first curve. It is likely
(based on past observation) that, where the first curve in a class
is not optimal, it is related to the optimal curve by a 2-isogeny.
- In the range 8001-12000 we also do not have the modular degree (in
most cases).
- For any individual level in the range 8001-12000, it is possible to
carry out the extra computations needed to fill these gaps
(determining the optimal curve and modular degree), but doing so
for all curves in the range would probably take a few months with
the current algorithms and programs. An independent computation by
Mark Watkins has determined, conditionally
on the Stevens conjecture, which curve in each class is optimal,
and has determined its modular degree. Our results agree for all
levels up to 8000 and we expect them to agree in the higher range
also.
- 17/9/01: Error corrected: added 5104B1 to files, omitted due to an
error discovered while working on 2*5104=10208. Further checking
has shown that no further omissions were made at around the same
time.
