### Certain endomorphisms of $\mathbb{C}(x,y)$

Let $f: (x,y) \mapsto (p,q)$ be a $\mathbb{C}$-algebra endomorphism of $\mathbb{C}(x,y)$ satisfying the following two conditions: (i) $\operatorname{Jac}(p,q):=p_xq_y-p_yq_x \in \mathbb{C}-\{0\}$. (...

### Surjectivity of the Abel-Prym map

It is well known that the Abel-Jacobi map restricted to $\text{Eff}_g(C)$ surjects onto the Jacobian $\text{Jac}(C)$, since every divisor of degree $g$ is effective. Is there an analogous statement ...

### A map on Jacobians coming from a correspondence explicitly

From this question, we know that every map of the form $J(C) \to J(C)$ for a curve $C$ and it's jacobian $J(C)$ comes from a correspondence between $C\times C$ and in fact we can take this ...

### 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 ...

### $f,g \in \mathbb{Z}[x,y]$ satisfying: $\operatorname{Jac}(f,g)=0$ and $f,g \notin \mathbb{Z}[h]$ for every $h \in \mathbb{Z}[x,y]$?

Is it possible to find $f,g \in \mathbb{Z}[x,y]$ (with $\deg(f),\deg(g) \geq 1$) such that the following two conditions are satisfied: (1) $\operatorname{Jac}(f,g)=f_xg_y-f_yg_x = 0$. (2) ...

### 2-Torsion in Jacobians of Curves Over Finite Fields

Let $C$ be a (smooth, projective) curve over a finite field $\mathbb{F}_q$, and let $J_C(\mathbb{F}_q)$ denote its Jacobian. Suppose the genus $g$ of $C$ is at least $1$. Question 1: Are there curves ...

### Confusion in known result about moduli space of vector bundle of rank 2 degree 0 vector bundles over smooth curve of genus 2

Theorem: Let $X$ be a complete, non-singular algebraic curve of genus $2$. Let $U(2, \Theta)$ be the space of $S$-equivalence classes of semi-stable vector bundles of rank $2$ and degree $\Theta$. The ...

### When does the Jacobian of a smooth curve contains an unique principal polarization

Let $X$ be a smooth, projective curve of genus at least $4$ and $X$ non-hyperelliptic. I am looking for additional conditions on $X$ such that the Jacobian $J(X)$ of $X$ contains an unique principal ...

### Naive question on the Jacobian of a curve

Let $X$ be a smooth, projective curve of genus $g \ge 2$. We know that the Jacobian $J(X)$ of the curve is a principally polarized abelian variety. The principal polarization is induced by the ...

### Is a torsion free sheave of rank one on a reducible curve the pushforward of a line bundle on a normalization?

Let $X$ be a nodal curve, possibly reducible. Then can any torsion free sheaf of rank one on $X$ be expressed as $\pi_*(L)$, where $L$ is a line bundle on a partial normalization of $X$? This looks ...

### Is every abelian variety a subvariety of a Jacobian?

Let $k$ be an infinite field and $A$ be an abelian variety over $k$. Can $A$ be embedded into a Jacobian variety $J$ over $k$? In these notes by William Stein this is stated without proof in remark 1....

### Some curves on the Jacobian of a genus $2$ curve and their image under certain maps (char $p$)

I hope this question belongs here. The situation in this question is quite particular and specific. I am trying to weak some of theory to measure the degree of some function on the Jacobian of a ...

### An example of curves with the same Jacobian, but different Jacobian automorphism groups (wrt their respective canonical principal polarizations)?

I am trying to understand examples of differing curves with the same Jacobian, and the quirks of the Jacobian. Here is my question: What is an example where $Aut(Jac(X, a))$ and $Aut(Jac(X', a'))$ ...

### Regularity of the Jacobian of a $W^{2,n}$ Sobolev mapping

Given a mapping in the Sobolev space $f\in W^{2,n}_{\rm loc}(\mathbb{R}^n,\mathbb{R}^n)$ I would like to know what is the Sobolev regularity of the Jacobian $J_f=\operatorname{det} Df$. It is well ...

### Factors of the Jacobian of modular curves

Let $J_1(p)$ be the Jacobian of the modular curve $X_1(p)$ for p an odd prime. We know that $J_1(p)$ is isogenous to a direct sum of abelian varieties $\oplus_{f}A_f$ where the sum runs over Hecke/...

### If $f,g \in D[x,y]$ are algebraically dependent over $D$, then $f,g \in D[h]$ for some $h\in D[x,y]$?

This question asks: If $f,g \in k[x,y]$ are two algebraically dependent polynomials over an arbitrary field $k$, is it true that there exists a polynomial $h \in k[x,y]$ such that $f,g \in k[h]$, ...

### A non-commutative analog of: two polynomials are algebraically dependent iff their Jacobian is zero

Let $f,g \in \mathbb{C}[x,y]$. There is a well-known result, that can be found for example here, pages 19-20, that says the following: $f,g$ are algebraically dependent over $\mathbb{C}$ if and ...

### Scalar multiplication via the Kummer surface of a genus $2$ curve by $\sqrt{5}$

I hope this is a good question. Recently I worked with genus two curves $H$ that have multiplication by $[\zeta_5]\in \text{Aut}(H)$, that is, multiplication by $e^{2\pi i/5}$. This automorphism is ...
