It is known that each lattice in complex numbers defines an elliptic curve via Weierstass function. This gives us an injection between the set of lattices- up to homothehy- and the set of elliptic curves, up to isomorphism. In fact, this injection is a bijection, which is called uniformization of elliptic curves over comlex numbers. Later on, John Tate showed that this is true also for elliptic curves over a p-adic field. In this thesis, I describe Tate’s theory  and derive a uniformization of elliptic curves over a p-adic field.
