Abstract

Let J be the Jacobian variety of a hyperelliptic curve over $\mathbb{Q}$. Let M be the field generated by all square roots of rational integers over a finite number field K. Then we prove that the Mordell-Weil group J(M) is the direct sum of a finite torsion group and a free $\mathbb{Z}$-module of infinite rank. In particular, J(M) is not a divisible group. On the other hand, if $\widetilde{M}$ is an extension of M which contains all the torsion points of J over $\widetilde{\mathbb{Q}}$, then $J(\widetilde{M}^{sol})/J(\widetilde{M}^{sol})_{tors}$ is a divisible group of infinite rank, where $\widetilde{M}^{sol}$ is the maximal solvable extension of $\widetilde{M}$.
