Elliptic fibrations on K3 surfaces and Salem numbers of maximal degree
We study the maximal Salem degree of automorphisms of K3 surfaces via elliptic fibrations. In particular, we establish a characterization of such maximum in terms of elliptic fibrations with infinite automorphism groups. As an application, we show that any supersingular K3 surface in odd characteristic has an automorphism the entropy of which is the natural logarithm of a Salem number of degree 22.
