    Endomorphisms of abelian varieties, cyclotomic extensions and Lie algebras

    Full text link
    We prove an analogue of the Tate conjecture on homomorphisms of abelian varieties over infinite cyclotomic extensions of finitely generated fields of characteristic zero.Comment: 9 page

    Serre Theorem for involutory Hopf algebras

    Full text link
    We call a monoidal category C{\mathcal C} a Serre category if for any CC, D∈CD \in {\mathcal C} such that C\ot D is semisimple, CC and DD are semisimple objects in C{\mathcal C}. Let HH be an involutory Hopf algebra, MM, NN two HH-(co)modules such that M⊗NM \otimes N is (co)semisimple as a HH-(co)module. If NN (resp. MM) is a finitely generated projective kk-module with invertible Hattory-Stallings rank in kk then MM (resp. NN) is (co)semisimple as a HH-(co)module. In particular, the full subcategory of all finite dimensional modules, comodules or Yetter-Drinfel'd modules over HH the dimension of which is invertible in kk are Serre categories.Comment: a new version: 8 page

    Automorphisms and forms of simple infinite-dimensional linearly compact Lie superalgebras

    Full text link
    We describe the group of continuous automorphisms of all simple infinite-dimensional linearly compact Lie superalgebras and use it in order to classify F-forms of these superalgebras over any field F of characteristic zero.Comment: 24 page

    Some genus 3 curves with many points

    Full text link
    Using an explicit family of plane quartic curves, we prove the existence of a genus 3 curve over any finite field of characteristic 3 whose number of rational points stays within a fixed distance from the Hasse-Weil-Serre upper bound. We also provide an intrinsic characterization of so-called Legendre elliptic curves

    Non-commutative p-adic L-functions for supersingular primes

    Full text link
    Let E/Q be an elliptic curve with good supersingular reduction at p with a_p(E)=0. We give a conjecture on the existence of analytic plus and minus p-adic L-functions of E over the Zp-cyclotomic extension of a finite Galois extension of Q where p is unramified. Under some technical conditions, we adopt the method of Bouganis and Venjakob for p-ordinary CM elliptic curves to construct such functions for a particular non-abelian extension.Comment: 13 pages; some minor corrections; to appear in International Journal of Number Theor

    Diversity in Parametric Families of Number Fields

    Full text link
    Let X be a projective curve defined over Q and t a non-constant Q-rational function on X of degree at least 2. For every integer n pick a point P_n on X such that t(P_n)=n. A result of Dvornicich and Zannier implies that, for large N, among the number fields Q(P_1),...,Q(P_N) there are at least cN/\log N distinct, where c>0. We prove that there are at least N/(\log N)^{1-c} distinct fields, where c>0.Comment: Minor inaccuracies detected by the referees are correcte

    Representations and KK-theory of Discrete Groups

    Full text link
    Let Γ\Gamma be a discrete group of finite virtual cohomological dimension with certain finiteness conditions of the type satisfied by arithmetic groups. We define a representation ring for Γ\Gamma, determined on its elements of finite order, which is of finite type. Then we determine the contribution of this ring to the topological KK-theory K∗(BΓ)K^*(B\Gamma), obtaining an exact formula for the difference in terms of the cohomology of the centralizers of elements of finite order in Γ\Gamma.Comment: 4 page

    Serre's "formule de masse" in prime degree

    Full text link
    For a local field F with finite residue field of characteristic p, we describe completely the structure of the filtered F_p[G]-module K^*/K^*p in characteristic 0 and $K^+/\wp(K^+) in characteristic p, where K=F(\root{p-1}\of F^*) and G=\Gal(K|F). As an application, we give an elementary proof of Serre's mass formula in degree p. We also determine the compositum C of all degree p separable extensions with solvable galoisian closure over an arbitrary base field, and show that C is K(\root p\of K^*) or K(\wp^{-1}(K)) respectively, in the case of the local field F. Our method allows us to compute the contribution of each character G\to\F_p^* to the degree p mass formula, and, for any given group \Gamma, the contribution of those degree p separable extensions of F whose galoisian closure has group \Gamma.Comment: 36 pages; most of the new material has been moved to the new Section
