abstract
Let $E$ be an elliptic curve without complex multiplication over a number field $F$, let $\ell$ be a prime, and let $\alpha\in E(F)$ be a point of infinite order such that $\alpha+T$ is not $\ell$ times a point over $F$ for any $F$-rational torsion point $T$. We prove that if we fix the image of the usual $\ell$-adic representation attached to $E$, $$\rho : \Gal(T_\infty/F)\rightarrow \Aut(T_\ell(E)),$$
