Uniform bounds for rational points on hyperelliptic fibrations

  title={Uniform bounds for rational points on hyperelliptic fibrations},
  author={Dante Bonolis and Tim D. Browning},
We apply a variant of the square-sieve to produce a uniform upper bound for the number of rational points of bounded height on a family of surfaces that admit a fibration over the projective line, whose general fibre is a hyperelliptic curve.

Diagonal cubic forms and the large sieve
Let F (x) be a diagonal integer-coefficient cubic form in m ∈ {4, 5, 6} variables. Excluding rational lines if m = 4, we bound the number of integral solutions x ∈ [−X,X] to F (x) = 0 by OF, (X


Counting rational points on smooth cyclic covers
A conjecture of Serre concerns the number of rational points of bounded height on a finite cover of projective space Pn−1. In this paper, we achieve Serreʼs conjecture in the special case of smooth
On the number of points on a complete intersection over a finite field
Abstract Let V be a projective complete intersection defined over the finite field F q of q = p α elements and suppose it has dimension n and a singular locus of dimension d . We prove that the
Integral points on elliptic curves and 3-torsion in class groups
We give new bounds for the number of integral points on elliptic curves. The method may be said to interpolate between approaches via diophantine techniques ([BP], [HBR]) and methods based on

A bound for the 3-part of class numbers of quadratic fields by means of the square sieve
Abstract We prove a nontrivial bound of O(|D|27/56+ε) for the 3-part of the class number of a quadratic field ℚ(√D) by using a variant of the square sieve and the q-analogue of van der Corput's
The polynomial sieve and equal sums of like polynomials
A new polynomial sieve is presented and used to show that almost all integers have at most one representation as a sum of two values of a given polynomial of degree at least 3.

Bounds on 2-torsion in class groups of number fields and integral points on elliptic curves
We prove the first known nontrivial bounds on the sizes of the 2-torsion subgroups of the class groups of cubic and higher degree number fields $K$ (the trivial bound being $O_{\epsilon}(|{\rm
Integral Points on Elliptic Curves and the Bombieri-Pila Bounds
Let C be an affine, plane, algebraic curve of degree d with integer coefficients. In 1989, Bombieri and Pila showed that if one takes a box with sides of length N then C can obtain no more than
