Local data

This elliptic curve is semistable. There are 2 primes of bad reduction:

gp: ellglobalred(E)[5]
 
magma: [LocalInformation(E,p) : p in BadPrimes(E)];
 
prime Tamagawa number Kodaira symbol Reduction type Root number ord($N$) ord($\Delta$) ord$(j)_{-}$

$7$ $1$ $I_{1}$ Split multiplicative -1 1 1 1

Galois representations

sage: [rho.image_type(p) for p in rho.non_surjective()]
 
magma: [GaloisRepresentation(E,p): p in PrimesUpTo(20)];
 

The $\ell$-adic Galois representation has maximal image for all primes $\ell$ except those listed in the table below.

prime $\ell$ mod-$\ell$ image $\ell$-adic image
$2$ 2B 8.6.0.1
$3$ 3B.1.1 9.24.0.1

$p$-adic regulators

sage: [E.padic_regulator(p) for p in primes(5,20) if E.conductor().valuation(p)<2]
 

All $p$-adic regulators are identically $1$ since the rank is $0$.

$\mu$-invariant(s) 0 0 0

All Iwasawa $\lambda$ and $\mu$-invariants for primes $p\ge 5$ of good reduction are zero.

Isogenies

This curve has non-trivial cyclic isogenies of degree $d$ for $d=$ 2, 3, 6, 9 and 18.
Its isogeny class 14.a consists of 6 curves linked by isogenies of degrees dividing 18.

Growth of torsion in number fields

Additional information

This curve $E$ also parametrizes pairs $(R,T)$ where $R$ is a rational rectangle, $T$ is a Pythagorean triangle, and $R,T$ have the same perimeter and the same area. (That is, $E$ is birational with the curve of $(a:b:c:x:y) \in {\bf P}^4$ with $a^2+b^2=c^2$, $a+b+c=2x+2y$, and $ab/2=xy$.) Unfortunately the six rational points on $E$ all yield degenerate solutions. [Noted in passing in Richard Guy's paper "My Favorite Elliptic Curve: A Tale of Two Types of Triangles", Amer. Math. Monthly 102 #9 (Nov. 1995), 771-781.]
