### Discriminant of a polynomial in two variables

I want to compute the discriminant of the following polynomial $$F(X,Y)=X^mY^n+\sum_{i=0}^{m-1}\sum_{j=0}^{n-1}c_{ij}X^iY^j.$$ Here the discriminate means the equation $D(c_{i,j})$ in the variables ...

### Discriminant polynomial generalizing the usual discriminant

I wonder if anybody has seen the following natural polynomial. Given a monic univariate polynomial $P(z)$ of degree $N$, denote its roots by $z_1,..., z_N$. Now form a new polynomial $Q(z)$ of ...

### Genus 2 hyperelliptic cryptography : typical discriminant and class number

As far as I know, there is no standard yet for cryptography based on the DLP over Jacobians of genus 2 curves. Yet, what can we say about the class number, and the discriminant of the complex ...

### Discriminant of a compositum of number fields, a bound?

Given two number fields $E$ and $F$, is there a bound on $|d_{EF}|$, the absolute value of the absolute discriminant of the compositum of fields $EF$, in terms of $d_E$, $d_F$, and the extension ...

### Discriminants of Clifford algebras

I have a Clifford algebra defined over a field of characteristic not equal to 2. Is there a formula for its discriminant in terms of the corresponding symmetric bilinear form (or in terms of its ...

### plane cubics and conic bundles

It is well known that any plane cubic curve can be obtained as the discriminant locus of a conic bundle (actually even just of a net of conics). Does this hold true also for all nodal cubics (with ...
Consider globally complete intersections in $\mathbb{P}^n$, of codimension $k$, of some fixed multi-degree $(d_1,\dots,d_k)$. Is there some nice (i.e. "explicit") parameter space for them? (even if ...
An element $p$ of a commutative ring $R$ is called "prime" if, for any $a,b\in R$, whenever $ab$ is a multiple of $p$, either $a$ or $b$ is a multiple of $p$. Is there a word for the "prime-like" ...
