Finding Rational Points on Curves of genus 3

Nils BRUIN (Utrecht)

Abstract: We will talk about covering techniques for finding rational points on curves of genus 3. A double cover of a curve of genus 5 can be mapped into a 2-dimensional variety. These are better understood than genus 3 Jacobians.
