The aim of this thesis is to de�ne the Elliptic Curves and some of intresting properties of a special class of terms,namely,rational point of elliptic curve ,The properties of the rational pooint of curve is airthmetic ,and rational point on elliptic curve forms a �nitely generated group structure group it will be done by using the chord-tangent group law of composition.After completing the the abelian group structure,so we look some elementary properties like for a given elliptic curve we �nd the torsion subgroup of that elliptic curves.and �nally done the elliptic curve and their isomorphism. Further, we study different families of elliptic curves which depend on different parameters. Moreover, we look at the reduction modulo p of an elliptic curve and infer the meaning of good and bad reduction of an elliptic curve. Lastly, the statement and proof of Mordell-Weil theorem is given. The topics of the thesis are based on the book Elliptic Curves by Dale Husemoller. I have not added anything new, except making a few observations of my own.
