Publication# On the Reduction of Points on Abelian Varieties and Tori

Abstract

Let G be the product of an abelian variety and a torus defined over a number field K. Let R-1, ..., R-n be points in G(K). Let l be a rational prime, and let a(1), ..., a(n) be nonnegative integers. Consider the set of primes p of K satisfying the following condition: the l-adic valuation of the order of (R-i mod p) equals a(i) for every i = 1, ..., n. We show that this set is either finite or has a positive natural density. We characterize the n-tuples a(1), ..., a(n) for which the density is positive. More generally, we study the l-part of the reduction of the points.

Abelian variety

In mathematics, particularly in algebraic geometry, complex analysis and algebraic number theory, an abelian variety is a projective algebraic variety that is also an algebraic group, i.e., has a group law that can be defined by regular functions. Abelian varieties are at the same time among the most studied objects in algebraic geometry and indispensable tools for much research on other topics in algebraic geometry and number theory. An abelian variety can be defined by equations having coefficients in any field; the variety is then said to be defined over that field.

Algebraic number field

In mathematics, an algebraic number field (or simply number field) is an extension field of the field of rational numbers such that the field extension has finite degree (and hence is an algebraic field extension). Thus is a field that contains and has finite dimension when considered as a vector space over . The study of algebraic number fields, and, more generally, of algebraic extensions of the field of rational numbers, is the central topic of algebraic number theory.

Torus

In geometry, a torus (: tori or toruses) is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space one full revolution about an axis that is coplanar with the circle. The main types of toruses include ring toruses, horn toruses, and spindle toruses. A ring torus is sometimes colloquially referred to as a donut or doughnut. If the axis of revolution does not touch the circle, the surface has a ring shape and is called a torus of revolution, also known as a ring torus.

Let G be the product of an abelian variety and a torus defined over a number field K. Let P and Q be K-rational points on G. Suppose that for all but finitely many primes p of K the order of (Q mod p)
