i also have notes on elliptic curves but no time to render them accessible right now.

basic fact: an elliptioc curve over C, is either a plane cubic curve with no singular points, or a quotient of C by a lattice, or an abstract compact conected one dimensional complex manifold of genus one, i.e. with exactly one independent holomorphic differential form.
