Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Let k be a number field. We give an explicit bound, depending only on [k: Q], on the size of the Brauer group of a K3 surface X/k that is geometrically isomorphic to the Kummer surface attached to a product of CM elliptic curves. As an application, we show that the Brauer–Manin set for such a variety is effectively computable. In addition, we prove an effective version of the strong Shafarevich conjecture for singular K3 surfaces by giving an explicit bound, depending only on [k: Q], on the number of C-isomorphism classes of singular K3 surfaces defined over k.
