### Why an elliptic curve can be defined as an abelian variety of dimension 1?

Now we define an elliptic curve as "a smooth projective curve of genus one with a specified base point". (A little question by the way: Is the requirement "with a specified base point&...

### Does the Jacobian functor respect deformations?

I am trying to understand the relationship between deformations of curves and deformations of their Jacobians and would greatly appreciate a sanity check. Let $C_0$ be a smooth projective curve over a ...

### Generic properties of Jacobians of smooth functions

Let $f = (f_1, \dotso, f_n):\mathbb{R}^n \to \mathbb{R}^n$ be a smooth map and let $J$ be its Jacobian (determinant of the matrix with $ij$-th entry $\partial_i f_j$). We introduce the zero sets of $J$...

### Solutions to $w_x=CA_x$, $w_y=CA_y$ other than $w=f(A)$ and $C=f'(A)$?
Let $R \in \{\mathbb{C}[t^2,t^3], \mathbb{Z}[\sqrt{5}]\}$, and let $A=A(x,y) \in R[x,y]$ with $\deg(A) \geq 1$ (total degree). I wish to prove or find a counterexample to the following claim: If ...
