Growth of torsion in number fields

The number fields $K$ of degree less than 24 such that $E(K)_{\rm tors}$ is strictly larger than $E(\Q)_{\rm tors}$ $\cong \Z/{4}\Z$ are as follows:

Iwasawa invariants

$p$ 2 17
Reduction type ord split
$\lambda$-invariant(s) 0 1
$\mu$-invariant(s) 2 0

All Iwasawa $\lambda$ and $\mu$-invariants for primes $p\ge 3$ of good reduction are zero.

$p$-adic regulators

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

Additional information

This is the only elliptic curve over $\Q$ of prime conductor $N$ and discriminant $\Delta = \pm N^4$, and one of only four prime-conductor curves of discriminant $\pm N^e$ with $e > 2$: the others are the modular curves $X_0(N)$ for N=11 [11.a2] and N=19 [19.a2], and the curve [37.b2] (with $e=5,3,3$ respectively -- in each case, as here with $(N,e)=(17,4)$, the exponent $e$ is the numerator of $(N-1)/12$).
