A comparison of elliptic units in certain prime power conductor cases

Ulrich Schmitt (2015)

Acta Arithmetica

The aim of this paper is to compare two modules of elliptic units, which arise in the study of elliptic curves E over quadratic imaginary fields K with complex multiplication by K , good ordinary reduction above a split prime p and prime power conductor (over K). One of the modules is a special case of those modules of elliptic units studied by K. Rubin in his paper [Invent. Math. 103 (1991)] on the two-variable main conjecture (without p-adic L-functions), and the other module is a smaller one,...

Computing the cardinality of CM elliptic curves using torsion points

François Morain (2007)

Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux

Let / ¯ be an elliptic curve having complex multiplication by a given quadratic order of an imaginary quadratic field 𝕂 . The field of definition of is the ring class field Ω of the order. If the prime p splits completely in Ω , then we can reduce modulo one the factors of p and get a curve E defined over 𝔽 p . The trace of the Frobenius of E is known up to sign and we need a fast way to find this sign, in the context of the Elliptic Curve Primality Proving algorithm (ECPP). For this purpose, we propose...

Corestriction of central simple algebras and families of Mumford-type

Federica Galluzzi (1999)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

Let M be a family of Mumford-type, that is, a family of polarized complex abelian fourfolds as introduced by Mumford in [9]. This family is defined starting from a quaternion algebra A over a real cubic number field and imposing a condition to the corestriction of such A . In this paper, under some extra conditions on the algebra A , we make this condition explicit and in this way we are able to describe the polarization and the complex structures of the fibers. Then, we look at the non simple C M -fibers...

Denominators of Igusa class polynomials

Kristin Lauter, Bianca Viray (2014)

Publications mathématiques de Besançon

In [22], the authors proved an explicit formula for the arithmetic intersection number CM ( K ) . G 1 on the Siegel moduli space of abelian surfaces, under some assumptions on the quartic CM field K . These intersection numbers allow one to compute the denominators of Igusa class polynomials, which has important applications to the construction of genus 2 curves for use in cryptography. One of the main tools in the proof was a previous result of the authors [21] generalizing the singular moduli formula of Gross...
