##### Abstract

The authors give numerical evidence for the Birch Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture for a particular Weil curve whose Mordell-Weil group has rank 3. For the Weil curves of rank lt;3 there is now very strong theoretical evidence for the Birch Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, hence making a numerical investigation of a rank 3 curve very natural. The paper gives a very nice description of the mathematical preliminaries to the actual numerical calculation and ends by giving the numerical results which predict the Tate-Shafarevich group to be of order 1 up to 28 decimal places.
