Rational points on some hyper- and superelliptic curves

Andrew Bremner, MacIej Ulas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We construct families of certain hyper- and superelliptic curves that contain a (small) number of rational points. This leads to lower bounds for the ranks of Jacobians of certain high genus curves.
