Certain abelian varieties bad at only one prime

Armand Brumer and Kenneth Kramer

Vol. 12 (2018), No. 5, 1027–1071
Abstract

An abelian surface A of prime conductor N is favorable if its 2-division field F is an S5-extension over with ramification index 5 over 2. Let A be favorable and let B be a semistable abelian variety of dimension 2d and conductor Nd with B[2] filtered by copies of A[2]. We give a sufficient class field theoretic criterion on F to guarantee that B is isogenous to Ad.

As expected from our paramodular conjecture, we conclude that there is one isogeny class of abelian surfaces for each conductor in {277,349,461,797,971}. The general applicability of our criterion is discussed in the data section.
