For an abelian variety $A$ of dimension $g$ over a number field $K$, a **prime of good reduction** (for $A$) is a prime $\mathfrak{p}$ of $K$ for which the reduction of $A$ modulo $\mathfrak{p}$ is an abelian variety of dimension $g$ over the residue field at $\mathfrak{p}$. This holds for all but finitely many primes $\mathfrak{p}$; those for which it does not are primes of bad reduction.
