### Interpreting Frobenius pullback as an invariant differential in the case of an elliptic curve

Let $S$ be an affine scheme of characteristic $p > 0$, let $E \rightarrow S$ be an elliptic curve over $S$, and let $F$ denote the absolute Frobenius. Since $E$ is its own $\mathrm{Pic}^0$ there is ...

### homological invariant of the “universal elliptic curve” over the punctured $j$-line

My question considers the curve $E$ over the affine $j$-line $S$ given by $$Y^2 - (j-1728)XY = X^3 - 36(j-1728)^3X - (j-1728)^5$$ This curve has the property that it's $j$-invariant is $j$ (see ...

### Frey's Formula and utilisation of the Hasse Invariant in “Links between Stable elliptic curves and Diophantine equations.”

In the paper "Links between Stable elliptic curves and Diophantine equations" for an elliptic curve $E$ with normal Weierstrass form $$y^2 = x^3 -g_2x -g_3$$ with $g_i \in \mathbb{Z}$ w.l.o.g. Then ...

### Is it possible the division polynomials evaluated at fixed point to be perfect powers unbounded number of times?

Let $E$ be elliptic curve over the rationals and $P=(X_P,Y_P)$ point on $E$. $\psi_n$ are the division polynomials. Define $a_n=\psi_n(X_P,Y_P)$. Is it possible $a_n$ to be perfect power ...
