A Manin-Mumford theorem for the maximal compact subgroup of a universal vectorial extension of a product of elliptic curves

Submission date: 12 January 2018

Abstract:

We study the intersection of an algebraic variety with the maximal compact subgroup of a universal vectorial extension of a product of elliptic curves. For this intersection we show a Manin-Mumford type statement. This answers some questions posed by Corvaja-Masser-Zannier which arose in connection with their investigation of the intersection of a curve with real analytic subgroups of various algebraic groups. They prove finiteness in the situation of a single elliptic curve. Using Khovanskii's zero-estimates combined with a stratification result of Gabrielov-Vorobjov and recent work of the authors we obtain effective bounds for this intersection that only depend on the degree of the algebraic variety, and the dimension of the group. This seems new even if restricted to the classical Manin-Mumford statement.
