Bounds for Serre's open image theorem for elliptic curves over number fields

Davide Lombardo

Vol. 9 (2015), No. 10, 2347–2395

For an elliptic curve EK without potential complex multiplication we bound the index of the image of Gal(K¯K) in GL2( ̂), the representation being given by the action on the Tate modules of E at the various primes. The bound is explicit and only depends on [K : ] and on the stable Faltings height of E. We also prove a result relating the structure of closed subgroups of GL2() to certain Lie algebras naturally attached to them.
