Six unlikely intersection problems in search of effectivity

Submission date: 22 September 2015


We investigate four properties related to an elliptic curve E_t in Legendre form with parameter t: the curve E_{t} has complex multiplication, E_{-t} has complex multiplication, a point on E_t with abscissa 2 is of finite order, and t is a root of unity. Combining all pairs of properties leads to six problems on unlikely intersections. We solve these problems effectively and in certain cases also explicitly.
