### 2-torsion points on Frey-Hellegouarch curve. [closed]

Let us consider the so-called Frey-Hellegouarch curve $E: Y^2 = X(X-a^l)(X+b^l)$. Q: What are two independent ${\Bbb Q}$-rational points of order $2$ on $E$ ?

### Curves on hypersurfaces generated by diagonal sums

This is related to an earlier question of mine ((Non-)Existence of curves of low degree on affine and projective varieties). It seems that the question is too difficult for specific surfaces, although ...

### (Non-)Existence of curves of low degree on affine and projective varieties

I am interested in papers that investigates the existence or non-existence of curves of low degree (relative to the degree of the ambient variety). The starting example is that of surfaces and ...

### Integral values of rational map

This question is related to this post on Math.MO. A theorem of B.Segre tells us that if there is one rational point on a non-singular cubic surface $X$ over $\mathbb{Q}$, then the surface is ...
A paper of Heath-Brown gives an heuristic argument for the density of rational points on two cubic surfaces: $x^3+y^3+z^3=kw^3,k=2,3$, say, the number of rational points of height less than $N$ on ...
