A bound for the average rank of a family of abelian varieties

Rania Wazir (2004)

Bollettino dell'Unione Matematica Italiana

In this note, we consider a one-parameter family of Abelian varieties A / Q T , and find an upper bound for the average rank in terms of the generic rank. This bound is based on Michel's estimates for the average rank in a one-parameter family of Abelian varieties, and extends previous work of Silverman for elliptic surfaces.

A fixed point formula of Lefschetz type in Arakelov geometry II: A residue formula

Kai Köhler, Damien Roessler (2002)

Annales de l’institut Fourier

This is the second of a series of papers dealing with an analog in Arakelov geometry of the holomorphic Lefschetz fixed point formula. We use the main result of the first paper to prove a residue formula "à la Bott" for arithmetic characteristic classes living on arithmetic varieties acted upon by a diagonalisable torus; recent results of Bismut- Goette on the equivariant (Ray-Singer) analytic torsion play a key role in the proof.

A local-global principle for rational isogenies of prime degree

Andrew V. Sutherland (2012)

Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux

Let K be a number field. We consider a local-global principle for elliptic curves E / K that admit (or do not admit) a rational isogeny of prime degree . For suitable K (including K = ), we prove that this principle holds for all 1 mod 4 , and for < 7 , but find a counterexample when = 7 for an elliptic curve with j -invariant 2268945 / 128 . For K = we show that, up to isomorphism, this is the only counterexample.
