Abelian cubic extensions of Q[i],

Recently I was considering cubic extensions $K/Q$ that have discriminant negative of a perfect square. Classifying these curves reduces to solving a Diophatine equation of the form $4a^3+27b^2=c^2$ ...

Intersection of Hilbert class fields of imaginary quadratic fields

In this question Hilbert class field of Quadratic fields it is mentioned that if $d\equiv 1 \mod 4$ then the Hilbert class field of $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{-d})$ contains $\mathbb{Q}(i,\sqrt{d})$. Could ...

Elliptic Curves with CM and Class Field Theory

Let $K$ be an imaginary quadratic field with Hilbert class field $H$, and let $E$ be an elliptic curve defined over $H$ with complex multiplication by the ring of integers $O_K$ of $K$. It is known ...

Can one prove complex multiplication without assuming CFT?

The Kronecker-Weber Theorem, stating that any abelian extension of $\mathbb Q$ is contained in a cyclotomic extension, is a fairly easy consequence of Artin reciprocity in class field theory (one just ...

Class Field Theory for Imaginary Quadratic Fields

Let $K$ be a quadratic imaginary field, and E an elliptic curve whose endomorphism ring is isomorphic to the full ring of integers of K. Let j be its j-invariant, and c an integral ideal of K. ...

What's the Hilbert class field of an elliptic curve?

My question points in a direction similar to Qiaochu's, but it's not the same (or so I think). Let me provide you with a little bit of background first. Let E be an elliptic curve defined over some ...
