Pfaffian definitions of Weierstrass elliptic functions

Submission date: 15 September 2017


We give explicit definitions of the Weierstrass elliptic functions ℘ and ζ in terms of pfaffian functions, with complexity independent of the lattice involved. We also give such a definition for a modification of the Weierstrass function σ. As immediate applications, we give an explicit uniform zero estimate for ℘ and answer a question of Corvaja, Masser and Zannier on additive extensions of elliptic curves.
