 Re: A question

```Those three curves have analytic Sha of order 1, 4, 1 respectively.

The models [0,0,0,A,B] are not global minimal models for the parameters
(61,62),(80,80),(93,94)
which cause you problems, and this could well be the reason.

You may be interested in the scripts written by my student Tom Womack
which compute analytic rank and analytic order of sha for curves whose
conductor is not too large.  See
http://www.maths.nott.ac.uk/personal/pmxtow/BG.gp

In your three cases the output is as follows; the output vector contains
[rank, L^(r)(1), approximate |Sha|].
