On the arithmetic of fibered surfaces

Kaba, Mustafa Devrim
In the first three chapters of this thesis we study two conjectures relating arithmetic with geometry, namely Tate and Lang’s conjectures, for a certain class of algebraic surfaces. The surfaces we are interested in are assumed to be defined over a number field, have irregularity two and admit a genus two fibration over an elliptic curve. In the final chapter of the thesis we prove the isomorphism of the Picard motives of an arbitrary variety and its Albanese variety.


BASKAL, S; ERIS, A; SATIR, A (1994-12-19)
The symmetries and associated conservation laws of the SO(2,1) invariant non-linear sigma model equations in 1+1 dimensions are investigated. An infinite family of generalized local symmetries is presented and the uniqueness of these solutions is discussed.
On homotopy groups of real algebraic varieties and their complexifications
Ozan, Yıldıray (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-10-01)
Let X-0 be a topological component of a nonsingular real algebraic variety and i : X --> X-C is a nonsingular projective complexification of X. In this paper, we will study the homomorphism on homotopy groups induced by the inclusion map i: X-0 --> X-C and obtain several results using rational homotopy theory and other standard tools of homotopy theory.
On endomorphisms of surface mapping class groups
Korkmaz, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2001-05-01)
In this paper, we prove that every endomorphism of the mapping class group of an orientable surface onto a subgroup of finite index is in fact an automorphism.
On a problem of Osserman in Lorentzian geometry
GarciaRio, E; Kupeli, DN; VazquezAbal, ME (Elsevier BV, 1997-03-01)
A problem of Osserman on the constancy of the eigenvalues of the Jacobi operator is studied in Lorentzian geometry. Attention is paid to the different cases of timelike, spacelike and null Osserman condition. One also shows a relation between the null Osserman condition and a previous one on infinitesimal null isotropy.
On the Krall-type polynomials on q-quadratic lattices
Alvarez-Nodarse, R.; Adiguzel, R. Sevinik (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
In this paper, we study the Krall-type polynomials on non-uniform lattices. For these polynomials the second order linear difference equation, q-basic series representation and three-term recurrence relations are obtained. In particular, the q-Racah-Krall polynomials obtained via the addition of two mass points to the weight function of the non-standard q-Racah polynomials at the ends of the interval of orthogonality are considered in detail. Some important limit cases are also discussed. (C) 2011 Royal Net...
