This chapter deals with Mordell–Weil groups and generating series. It first provides an overview of the basics on Shimura curves and abelian varieties parametrized by Shimura curves before introducing a theorem, which is an identity between the analytic kernel and the geometric kernel. It then defines the generating series and uses it to describe the geometric kernel. It also presents a theorem, which is an identity formulated in terms of projectors, and reviews some basic notations and results on Shimura curves. Other topics covered include the Eichler–Shimura theory for abelian varieties parametrized by Shimura curves, normalization of the geometric kernel, and the analytic kernel function. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the kernel identity implied in the first theorem.

Keywords:   abelian varieties, Mordell–Weil group, generating series, Shimura curve, analytic kernel, geometric kernel, projector, Eichler–Shimura theory, kernel identity
