On Elliptic Curves with Everywhere Good Reduction over Certain Number Fields

**Author(s)**Leave a comment

We prove the existence and nonexistence of elliptic curves having good reduction everywhere over certain real quadratic fields Q(m) for m≤200. These results of computations give best-possible data including structures of Mordell-Weil groups over some real quadratic fields via two-descent. We also prove similar results for the case of certain cubic fields. Especially, we give the first example of elliptic curve having everywhere good reduction over a pure cubic field using our method.
