Semistable abelian varieties with good reduction outside 15



We show that there are no non-zero semi-stable abelian varieties over \({{\bf Q}(\sqrt{5})}\) with good reduction outside 3 and we show that the only semi-stable abelian varieties over Q with good reduction outside 15 are, up to isogeny over Q, powers of the Jacobian of the modular curve X0(15).
