 A. Dujella, M. Jukić Bokun, I. Soldo, A Pellian equation with primes and applications to D(−1)quadruples, Bulletin of the Malaysian Mathematical Sciences Society 42 (2019), 29152926In this paper, we prove that the equation x^2 − (p^(2k+2) + 1)y^2 = −p^(2l+1), l∈{0, 1, . . . , k}, k ≥ 0, where p is an odd prime number, is not solvable in positive integers x and y. By combining that result with other known results on the existence of Diophantine quadruples, we are able to prove results on the extensibility of some D(−1)pairs to quadruples in the ring Z[√−t], t > 0.
 M. Jukić Bokun, I. Soldo, On the extensibility of D(1)pairs containing Fermat primes, Acta Mathematica Hungarica 159 (2019), 89108In this paper, we study the extendibility of a D(1)pair {1,p}, where p is a Fermat prime, to a D(1)quadruple in Z[sqrt{t}], t>0.
 A. Dujella, M. Jukić Bokun, I. Soldo, On the torsion group of elliptic curves induced by Diophantine triples over quadratic fields, RACSAM 111 (2017), 11771185The possible torsion groups of elliptic curves induced by Diophan tine triples over quadratic fields, which do not appear over Q, are Z/2Z × Z/10Z, Z/2Z × Z/12Z and Z/4Z × Z/4Z. In this paper, we show that all these torsion groups indeed appear over some quadratic field. Moreover, we prove that there are infinitely many Diophantine triples over quadratic fields which induce elliptic curves with these tor sion groups.
 J. Aguirre, A. Dujella, M. Jukić Bokun, J.C. Peral, High rank elliptic curves with prescribed torsion group over quadratic fields, Periodica Mathematica Hungarica 68 (2014), 222230There are 26 possibilities for the torsion group of elliptic curves defined over quadratic number fields. We present examples of high rank elliptic curves with given torsion group which give the current records for most of the torsion groups. In particular, we show that for each possible torsion group, except maybe for Z/15Z, there exist an elliptic curve over some quadratic field with this torsion group and with rank >= 2.

For the torsion groups Z/11Z, Z/14Z we solve the analogous problem after assuming the Parity conjecture.

Series A Mathematical sciences 87/5 (2011), 6164We construct elliptic curves over the field Q(sqrt{3}) with torsion group Z/3Z x Z/3Z and ranks equal to 7 and an elliptic curve over the same field with torsion group Z/3Z x Z/6Z and rank equal to 6.
