Non-vanishing of Artin-twisted L-functions of elliptic curves**Authors**: Thomas Ward

**Summary:**Let E be an elliptic curve and ρ an Artin representation, both defined over Q. Let p be a prime at which E has good reduction. We prove that there exists an infinite set of Dirichlet characters χ, ramified only at p, such that the Artin-twisted L-values L(E,ρ \otimes χ, β) are non-zero when β lies in a specified region in the critical strip (assuming the conjectural continuations and functional equations for these L-functions). The new contribution of our paper is that we may choose our characters to be ramified only at one prime, which may divide the conductor of ρ.
