### Higher Weierstrass points on curves of genus 3

So this question is directly related to a comment made by David Mumford in his
Lecture 1 given at U. Michigan in 1974 entitled: What is a curve and how explicitly can we describe them ?
Mumford ...

### Hodge bundle on F-curves

Let $\mathbb{E}\rightarrow\overline{M}_{g,n}$ be the Hodge bundle. Let us cosider an $F$-curve of type $\overline{M}_{1,1}\subseteq\overline{M}_{g,n}$. Is the degree of the restriction of $\mathbb{E}$ ...

### Igusa invariants of genus 2 curves as Siegel modular functions?

Hi,
Are the Igusa invariants (defined in Igusa's oringal paper) also classical Siegel modular forms? I read from somewhere that
$\psi_4=\frac{1}{4}I_4, \quad \psi_6=\frac{1}{8}(I_2I_4-3I_6), \quad ...

### Are ranks of Jacobians over number fields unbounded?

Fix a number field $K$.
Is the rank of $J(K)$ unbounded, where $J$ ranges over the Jacobians of all smooth, projective, geometrically connected curves over $K$?
Does there exist an integer $g$ such ...

### Families of three dimensional algebraic curves

Let's consider spatial algebraic curve $C\subset \mathbb P^3$.
How could I describe a family of such curves, for example the set of all curves genus $g$ passing through $k$ points?
I'd like to some ...

### Genus of algebraic curves with unknown degree

I am not sure if this is a valid question but posting any way:
Say I am over $\mathbb{F}_{p}$ for a prime $p$.
I have a curve of form $x^{2} = f(y)$ where $f(y)$ has an unknown form (and hence ...

### Why does the parameterization (F:F':1) happen?

1) To parameterize the conic $x^2+y^2=1$, we can use $(x,y)=(\sin t,\sin't)$ ($\sin'$ meaning the derivative of $\sin$, namely $\cos$).
2) To parameterize an elliptic curve $y^2=4x^3-g_2x-g_3$, we ...

### Does there exist a fibration of genus two over P^1 with only 3 singular fibres but two are semi-stable fibers for algebraic surfaces?

We will work over the complex numbers C.
there exist a fibration of genus two over P^1 with only 3 singular fibres but one is semi-stable fiber.
there not exist a fibration of genus two over P^1 ...
