New records for integral multiples of points

I’ve been trying to extend the results of the work described in this post, and following a suggestion of Noam Elkies have changed my search strategy from points corresponding to simple EDS triples to those given by (A,u,c) parametrisations as described here. Experimenting with these revealed some serious deficiencies with the height function in SAGE, …

Nontorsion Points of Low Height on Elliptic Curves over Quadratic Fields

I have uploaded a preprint of some recent efforts to the arXiv. In a break from my cyclotomic matrix work, this revisits a project I first became interested in over four years ago: the search for points with small height on elliptic curves over number fields, through the use of elliptic divisibility sequences. There used …
