# Reprint: On the rational points on curves of genus one (1934)

### Kurt Mahler

## Abstract

Let $f(x,y)$ be an irreducible polynomial with rational coefficients and suppose that $f(x,y)=0$ defines a curve of genus one with infinitely many rational points $(x,y)$ lying on it. In this paper, Mahler shows that given a finite set $S$ of prime numbers, there are only finitely many rational points $(x, y)$ on the curve such that $x$ or $y$ has all its prime factors in $S$.
