Title: Heights of elliptic curves and the elliptic analogue of the two-variable Artin conjecture

Abstract: Similar to the way Lang and Trotter adapted Artin's primitive root conjecture in the case of elliptic curves, we consider this natural adaptation for the two-variable Artin Conjecture. In light of our recent results for the two-variable setting, we present similar, unconditional lower bounds for this elliptic analogue.
