Some Questions regarding the fine Shafarevich-Tate group

The fine Shafarevich-Tate (ST) group appears to not have been studied in much depth except for one paper by Wuthrich (2007). However, it only talks about fine ST group for elliptic curves, which makes ...

Growth of Selmer Groups

If $E$ is an elliptic curve over $K$, is there any effective estimate for the discriminant of the extension $L/K$ for which the $p$-part of the Selmer or Tate-Shafarevich groups become large? I will ...

Looking for an elliptic curve E st ${\large Ш}(\mathbb Q,E)$ cont. an element of order $p^2$ and certain other properties

I am looking for an elliptic curve $E$ with Weierstraß coefficients in $\mathbb{Q} $ so that for some prime $p$ the following conditions are satisfied: (1) ${\large Ш}_{p^{\infty}}(\mathbb{Q},E)$ ...

Is the Tate-Shafarevich group of a rational elliptic curve finite?

It seems that Lan Nguyen proved in a preprint on arxiv of 2013 that the Tate-Shafarevich group of a rational elliptic curve is finite. However, I couldn't find any published version thereof. So is it ...

Local triviality of Galois cohomology classes over $\mathbb{Q}$

Let $A$ be a $\mathrm{Gal}(\bar{\mathbb{Q}}/\mathbb{Q})$-module which is a finitely generated free $\mathbb{Z}$-module. I'm interested in the behaviour of cohomology classes in $$\mathrm{H}^1(\mathbb{...

Relationship between Tate-Shafarevich group and the BSD conjecture

The finiteness of the Tate-Shafarevich group is known to be equivalent to BSD for elliptic curves over function fields over $\mathbb{F}_{q},$ this result is due to Kato and Trihan if I am not mistaken....

Selmer and free rank of Elliptic Curves

If I am not mistaken, the equality of the $p$-Selmer rank and the free rank of an elliptic curve are conjectured to be equal. This is one of the many implications of the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer ...

Is Ш a good parameter for the failure of Global-Local principle for abelian varieties?

(Comparing to class group cases: we have an isomorphism $Cl(K)\rightarrow \prod \left(K^\times \backslash K_p^\times /O_p^\times \right)$ for a number field $K$. Similarly, for an elliptic curve $E/\...

Tate-Shafarevich groups over finitely generated fields

Let $G$ be an algebraic group over a number field $k$. One defines the Tate-Shafarevich set of $G$ to be $$Ш(k,G) = \ker\left(H^1(k,G) \to \prod_{v} H^1(k_v,G)\right),$$ where the product is over all ...

$S$-Tate-Shafarevich groups of elliptic curves

Let $S$ be a finite set of places of a number field $k$ and let $E$ be an elliptic curve over $k$. Define the ''$S$-Tate-Shafarevich group" of $E$ to be $$Ш(E,S) = \ker\left(H^1(k,E) \to \prod_{v \...

The exponent of Ш of $y^2 = x^3 + px$, where $p$ is a Fermat prime

For $d$ a non-zero integer, let $E_d$ be the elliptic curve $$ E_d : y^2 = x^3+dx. $$ When we let $d$ be $p = 2^{2^k}+1$, for $k \in \{1,2,3,4\}$, sage tells us that, conditionally on BSD, $$ \# Ш(E_p)...

Why should I believe in the Siegel's and Hasse's rationale ?

Hello everyone, I was deeply attracted by the Hasse and Siegel's theorems while studying $p$-adic analysis. While reading a paper B.J. Birch and H.P.F. Swinnerton-Dyer - Notes on elliptic curves. I, ...

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 ...
