Musings on Q(1=4): Arithmetic spin structures on elliptic curves

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We introduce and study arithmetic spin structures on elliptic curves. We show that there is a unique isogeny class of elliptic curves over F p2 which carries a unique arithmetic spin structure and provides a geometric object of weight 1=2 in the sense of Deligne and Grothendieck. This object is thus a candidate for ℚ(1=4).
