Non-existence of points rational over number fields on Shimura curves

Volume 172 / 2016

Keisuke Arai Acta Arithmetica 172 (2016), 243-250 MSC: Primary 11G18, 14G05; Secondary 11G10, 11G15. DOI: 10.4064/aa8071-10-2015 Published online: 20 January 2016


Jordan, Rotger and de Vera-Piquero proved that Shimura curves have no points rational over imaginary quadratic fields under a certain assumption. In this article, we extend their results to the case of number fields of higher degree. We also give counterexamples to the Hasse principle on Shimura curves.
