The difference between the Weil height and the canonical height on elliptic curves
Estimates for the difference of the Weil height and the canonical height of points on elliptic curves are used for many purposes, both theoretical and computational. In this note we give an explicit
ON THE p-TORSION OF ELLIPTIC CURVES AND ELLIPTIC SURFACES IN CHARACTERISTIC p
We study the extension generated by the x-coordinates of the petorsion points of an elliptic curve over a function field of characteristic p. If S → C is a non-isotrivial elliptic surface in
The second moment of the number of integral points on elliptic curves is bounded
In this paper, we show that the second moment of the number of integral points on elliptic curves over $\mathbb{Q}$ is bounded. In particular, we prove that, for any $0 < s < \log_2 5 = 2.3219
Bounds for the integral points on elliptic curves over function fields
In this paper we give an upper bound for the number of integral points on an elliptic curve E over F_q[T] in terms of its conductor N and q. We proceed by applying the lower bounds for the canonical

The Geometry of Elliptic Curves
Elliptic curves, our principal object of study in this book, are curves of genus one having a specified base point. Our ultimate goal, as the title of the book indicates, is to study the arithmetic
On the ^{}-torsion of elliptic curves and elliptic surfaces in characteristic
We study the extension generated by the x-coordinates of the pe-torsion points of an elliptic curve over a function field of characteristic p. If S → C is a non-isotrivial elliptic surface in
Computing S-Integral Points on Elliptic Curves
TLDR
Borders for the size of the coefficients of integral points on E have been found and can be used only for soloving some particular equations or for treating a special model of elliptic curves, namely Thue curves of degree 3 (see [GSch]).
Computing integral points on elliptic curves
By a famous theorem of Siegel [S], the number of integral points on an elliptic curve E over an algebraic number field K is finite. A conjecture of Lang and Demjanenko [L3] states that, for a
The filled Julia set of a Drinfeld module and uniform bounds for torsion
If M is a Drinfeld module over a local function field L, we may view M as a dynamical system, and consider its filled Julia set J. If J^0 is the connected component of the identity, relative to the

Computing heights on elliptic curves
We describe how to compute the canonical height of points orn elliptic curves. Tate has given a rapidly converging series for Archimedean local heights over R. We describe a modified version of
Intersection numbers of sections of elliptic surfaces
The theory of elliptic surfaces over C draws on ideas and techniques from arithmetic, geometry and analysis. Let f : X ~ S be a minimal elliptic fibration with non-constant j-invariant, which

Abstract Suppose we are given a “Thue equation” f(x, y) = 1, where f is a binary form with coefficients in a function field K of characteristic zero. A typical result is that if f is of degree at
ON TATE HEIGHT AND THE REPRESENTATION OF NUMBERS BY BINARY FORMS
We give a decomposition of the Tate height into components possessing quadraticity with respect to a group law, and on the basis of this decomposition we obtain an estimate for the number of K-points
Heights and Elliptic Curves
Many of the deep results involving heights of abelian varieties become quite transparent in the case of elliptic curves. In this chapter we propose to prove some of these theorems for elliptic curves
