## 4. Dynatomic Modular Curves

1. #### Problem 4.1.

[Andrew Obus]
1. Analogy between dynatomic and modular curves (See Silverman, ADS Section 4.1 and 4.2 for dynatomic polynomials).
2. What are other proxies for level structure, e.g. marked critical points, for which bad primes are more natural?
• #### Problem 4.2.

1. For $p|N,$ $X^{\text{dyn}}(N)$ has bad reduction at $p$ for the standard model, but evidence suggests there exists a different model with good reduction. Is this true? If not, why not? Is there a “reason" for this to be true?
2. (Silverman) In general, what are the primes of bad reduction and why?
