Rational Points on Atkin-Lehner Quotients of Shimura Curves


We study three families of Atkin-Lehner quotients of quaternionic Shimura curves: X, X 0 (N), and X D+ 1 (N), which serve as moduli spaces of abelian surfaces with potential quaternionic multiplication (PQM) and level N structure. The arithmetic geometry of these curves is similar to, but even richer than, that of the classical modular curves. Two important… (More)
