Abstract

We consider elliptic curves whose coefficients are degree 2 polynomials in a variable t. We prove that for infinitely many values of t the resulting elliptic curve has rank at least 1. All such curves together form an algebraic surface which is birational to a conic bundle with 7 singular fibers. The main step of the proof is to show that such conic bundles are unirational. We study families of elliptic curves whose coefficients are degree 2 polynomials in a variable t. All such curves together form an algebraic surface which is birational to a conic bundle with 7 singular fibers. We prove that such conic bundles are unirational. As a consequence one obtains that, for infinitely many values of t, the resulting elliptic curve has rank at least 1.
