The purpose of this note is to introduce the arithmetic, study of the universal elliptic curve over Igusa curves. Specifically, its Hasse-Weil L-function is computed in terms of modular forms and is shown to have interesting zeros. Explicit examples are presented for which the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture is verified.
