    Local root numbers of elliptic curves over dyadic fields

    Get PDF
    We consider an elliptic curve over a dyadic field with additive, potentially good reduction. We study the finite Galois extension of the dyadic field generated by the three-torsion points of the elliptic curve. As an application, we give a formula to calculate the local root number of the elliptic curve over the dyadic field.Comment: 11 page

    Legendre elliptic curves over finite fields

    Get PDF
    We show that every elliptic curve over a finite field of odd characteristic whose number of rational points is divisible by 4 is isogenous to an elliptic curve in Legendre form, with the sole exception of a minimal respectively maximal elliptic curve. We also collect some results concerning the supersingular Legendre parameters

    Torsion points with multiplicatively dependent coordinates on elliptic curves

    In this paper, we study the finiteness problem of torsion points on an elliptic curve whose coordinates satisfy some multiplicative dependence relations. In particular, we prove that on an elliptic curve defined over a number field there are only finitely many torsion points whose coordinates are multiplicatively dependent. Moreover, we produce an effective result when the elliptic curve is defined over the rational numbers or has complex multiplication.Comment: 11 page
