Consider an absolutely simple abelian variety \$X\$ over a number field \$K\$. We show that if the absolute endomorphism ring of \$X\$ is commutative and satisfies certain parity conditions, then \$X_\idp\$ is absolutely simple for almost all primes \$\idp\$. Conversely, if the absolute endomorphism ring of \$X\$ is noncommutative, then \$X_\idp\$ is reducible for \$\idp\$ in a set of positive density.

The splitting of reductions of an abelian variety
Consider an absolutely simple abelian variety A defined over a number field K. For most places v of K, we study how the reduction A_v of A modulo v splits up to isogeny. Assuming the Mumford-Tate
Elliptic minuscule pairs and splitting abelian varieties
• Mathematics
• 2012
We partially answer, in terms of monodromy, Murty and Patankar's question: Given an absolutely simple abelian variety over a number field, does it have simple specializations at a set of places of
Distribution of primes of split reductions for abelian surfaces
. Let A/ Q be an absolutely simple abelian surface of type I according to Albert’s classiﬁcation of endomorphism algebras. Let π A, split ( x ) be the number of primes p ≤ x , of good reduction for A
Computing the geometric endomorphism ring of a genus-2 Jacobian
This work uses an algorithm to confirm that the description of the structure of the geometric endomorphism ring of \$\operatorname{Jac}(C)\$ given in the LMFDB (\$L\$-functions and modular forms database) is correct for all the genus 2 curves currently listed in it.
Split abelian surfaces over finite fields and reductions of genus-2 curves
• Mathematics
• 2015
For prime powers q, let s(q) denote the probability that a randomly-chosen principally-polarized abelian surface over the finite field F_q is not simple. We show that there are positive constants B
The large sieve and Galois representations
We describe a generalization of the large sieve to situations where the underlying groups are nonabelian, and give several applications to the arithmetic of abelian varieties. In our applications, we
Locally potentially equivalent galois representations
• Mathematics
• 2010
We show that if two continuous semi-simple `-adic Galois representa- tions are locally potentially equivalent at a sufficiently large set of places then they are globaly potentially equivalent. We
Finite descent obstruction for curves over function fields
We prove that a form of finite Galois descent obstruction is the only obstruction to the existence of integral points on integral models of twists of modular curves over function fields.
Explicit bounds for split reductions of simple abelian varieties
Soit X/K une variete abelienne absolument simple, definie sur un corps de nombres ; nous etudions comment les reductions X p tendent a etre simples egalement. Nous montrons que si End(X) est une
