On fields of definition of torsion points of elliptic curves with complex multiplication
Rights accessOpen Access
For any elliptic curve E defined over the rationals with complex multiplication (CM) and for every prime p, we describe the image of the mod p Galois representation attached to E. We deduce information about the field of definition of torsion points of these curves; in particular, we classify all cases where there are torsion points over Galois number fields not containing the field of definition of the CM.
