## Abstract

Let E be an elliptic curve. An irreducible algebraic curve C embedded in a power A of E is called weak-transverse if it is not contained in any proper algebraic subgroup of A, and transverse if it is not contained in any translate of such a subgroup. Suppose E and C are deﬁned over the algebraic numbers. First we prove that the algebraic points of a transverse curve C that are close to the union of all algebraic subgroups of E g of codimension 2 translated by points in a subgroup G of A of ﬁnite rank are a set of bounded height. The notion of closeness is deﬁned using a height function. If G is trivial, it is sufﬁcient to suppose that C is weak-transverse. The core of the article is the introduction of a method to determine the ﬁnite- ness of these sets. From a conjectural lower bound for the normalized height of a transverse curve C , we deduce that the sets above are ﬁnite. Such a lower bound exists for g ≤ 3. Concerning the codimension of the algebraic subgroups, our results are best possible.
