Are there any serious investigations of whether “mathematicians do their best work when they're young”?
I haven't read this in years. I have to say, I have learned a lot since then about how to construct a magazine article; this one is kind of confusing, especially where it suddenly veers from general math sociology into a discussion of algebraic topology with no transition. Still, since I am 11 years older now than I was when I wrote that, I heartily endorse its conclusions. |

Non-hyperelliptic families of curves with trivial Ceresa class (or Gross-Schoen class)
My student Lalit Jain pointed out to me the paper "The Griffiths Infinitesimal Invariant for a Curve in its Jacobian," by Collino and Pirola, which shows that a family of genus-g curves whose codimension in M_g is less than ~g/3 has nontrivial Ceresa. So that's something! |

Wait so I'm completely unaware that it's "generally believed" that non-hyperelliptic curves have non-torsion Ceresa cycle -- who believes this, have they written down why they believe it, etc.? |

I just mean etale cohomology -- I suppose this is "really" a motivic question but I don't think I need to invoke anything of that kind to get at what I'm interested in. |

Argument for unboundedness of integral points of elliptic curves over number fields
Oh I see. But if that's what joro was asking, I don't see how his construction gives any hint of how to get unbounded rank over a fixed K. |

Argument for unboundedness of integral points of elliptic curves over number fields
It should do. Just take your r points defined over disjoint quadratic fields, whose compositum is K; the MW rank over THAT field is finite, so you can certainly choose an integer x such that (sqrt(f(x))) generates a further quadratic extension of K, then you have rank r+1 and you just keep going. |
