### Full $n$-torsion of elliptic curves and the cyclotomic field of order $n$

Hi, overflowers.
I have a question concerning the torsion of elliptic curves over number fields.
Let us consider an elliptic curve $E$ defined over ${\mathbb Q}$. From the Weil pairing one can ...

### connection between non-orientable manifolds and torsion in 1D (co) homology

I'm interested in understanding the probability that given a prime $p$, $p$ divides the order of the torsional part of $H^k(X,Z)$, where $X$ is a finite simplicial complex.
Lets say you have a ...

### Torsion in cohomology

Suppose to have a short exact sequence of chain complexes of $\mathbb{Z}$-modules:
$$0\to A^\bullet\to B^\bullet\to C^\bullet\to 0$$
such that $A^k,B^k,C^k$ are non zero for $k=0,1,2$.
Moreover, ...
