ABSTRACT We improve a result due to Masser and Zannier, who showed that the set is finite, where Eλ: y2 = x(x − 1)(x − λ) is the Legendre family of elliptic curves. More generally, denote by T(α, β), for , α ≠ β, the set of such that all points with x-coordinate α or β are torsion on Eλ. By further results of Masser and Zannier, all these sets are finite. We present a fairly elementary argument showing that the set T(2, 3) in question is actually empty. More generally, we obtain an explicit… 
Unlikely intersections and equidistribution with a dynamical perspective
In this thesis we investigate generalizations of a theorem by Masser and Zannier concerning torsion specializations of sections in a fibered product of two elliptic surfaces. We consider the
Unlikely intersections with isogeny orbits
This thesis consists of six chapters and two appendices. The first two chapters contain the introduction and some preliminaries. Chapter 3 contains a characterization of curves in abelian schemes,
Linear relations in families of powers of elliptic curves
Motivated by recent work of Masser and Zannier on simultaneous torsion on the Legendre elliptic curve $E_\lambda$ of equation $Y^2=X(X-1)(X-\lambda)$, we prove that, given $n$ linearly independent
Variation of canonical height and equidistribution
Let $\pi : E\to B$ be an elliptic surface defined over a number field $K$, where $B$ is a smooth projective curve, and let $P: B \to E$ be a section defined over $K$ with canonical height
Six unlikely intersection problems in search of effectivity
Abstract We investigate four properties related to an elliptic curve Et in Legendre form with parameter t: the curve Et has complex multiplication, E−t has complex multiplication, a point on Et with
Torsion points with multiplicatively dependent coordinates on elliptic curves
In this paper, we study the finiteness problem of torsion points on an elliptic curve whose coordinates satisfy some multiplicative dependence relations. In particular, we prove that on an elliptic
Density of algebraic points on Noetherian varieties
Let $${\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^{n}}$$Ω⊂Rn be a relatively compact domain. A finite collection of real valued functions on $${{\Omega}}$$Ω is called a Noetherian chain if the partial derivatives of
Unlikely intersections in products of families of elliptic curves and the multiplicative group
Let $E_\lambda$ be the Legendre elliptic curve of equation $Y^2=X(X-1)(X-\lambda)$. We recently proved that, given $n$ linearly independent points $P_1(\lambda), \dots,P_n(\lambda)$ on $E_\lambda$
On elements of large order on elliptic curves and multiplicative dependent images of rational functions over finite fields
Let $E_1$ and $E_2$ be elliptic curves in Legendre form with integer parameters. We show there exists a constant $C$ such that for almost all primes, for all but at most $C$ pairs of points on the
