# Nontorsion Points of Low Height on Elliptic Curves over Quadratic Fields

@inproceedings{Taylor2011NontorsionPO, title={Nontorsion Points of Low Height on Elliptic Curves over Quadratic Fields}, author={Graeme Taylor}, year={2011} }

We give examples of points with particularly low height on elliptic curves over quadratic fields, recovered by a search over elliptic divisibility sequences. The smallest example identified satisfies dh(P)=0.0077127...: improving on the previous smallest for curves over quadratic fields of dh(P)=0.0194426... given by Everest and Ward; and comparable with some of the examples of smallest height on curves over Q tabulated by Elkies.

A new record for the canonical height on an elliptic curve over .

- Mathematics
- 2010

We exhibit an elliptic curve E/C(t) of discriminant degree 84 with a nontorsion point P of canonical height 2987/120120 (a new record). We also prove that if (E, P ) has Szpiro ratio σ ≤ 4, then ĥ(P…

Minimal Regulators for Rank-2 Subgroups of Rational and K3 Elliptic Surfaces

- 2009

The K3 surface is used in a new way to produce the elliptic curves E/ℚ with nontorsion points of smallest known canonical height and it is proved that 1/100 is the minimum for an elliptic curve of discriminant degree 24 over a function field of any genus.

The Canonical Height of an Algebraic Point on an Elliptic Curve

- Mathematics, Computer Science

We use elliptic divisibilitysequences to describe a method for es- timating the global canonical height of an algebraic point on an elliptic curve. This method requires almost no knowledge of the…

The Tate Pairing Via Elliptic Nets

- Computer Science, MathematicsPairing
- 2006

A new algorithm for computing the Tate pairing on an elliptic curve over a finite field using a generalisation of elliptic divisibility sequences known as elliptic nets, which are maps from Zn to a ring that satisfy a certain recurrence relation.
