N2 - Let E be an elliptic curve over F = Fq(t) having conductor (p)·∞, where (p) is a prime ideal in Fq[t]. Let d ∈ Fq[t] be an irreducible polynomial of odd degree, and let K = F(√d). Assume (p) remains prime in K. We prove the analogue of the formula of Gross for the special value L (E⊗F K, 1). As a consequence, we obtain a formula for the order of the Tate-Shafarevich group (E/K) when L (E⊗FK, 1) ≠ 0.
