In this paper, we prove the weak p-part of the Tamagawa number conjecture in all non-critical cases for the motives associated to Hecke characters of the form φa φ̄b where φ is the Hecke character of a CM elliptic curve E defined over an imaginary quadratic field K, under certain restrictions which originate mainly from the Iwasawa theory of imaginary quadratic fields. © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
