Jacobian ‘morphism’ as a class in the Picard group#
This module implements the group operation in the Picard group of a hyperelliptic curve, represented as divisors in Mumford representation, using Cantor’s algorithm.
A divisor on the hyperelliptic curve \(y^2 + y h(x) = f(x)\) is stored in Mumford representation, that is, as two polynomials \(u(x)\) and \(v(x)\) such that:
\(u(x)\) is monic,
\(u(x)\) divides \(f(x) - h(x) v(x) - v(x)^2\),
\(deg(v(x)) < deg(u(x)) \le g\).

EXAMPLES: The following curve is the reduction of a curve whose Jacobian has complex multiplication.
sage: x = GF(37)['x'].gen()
sage: H = HyperellipticCurve(x^5 + 12*x^4 + 13*x^3 + 15*x^2 + 33*x); H
Hyperelliptic Curve over Finite Field of size 37 defined
by y^2 = x^5 + 12*x^4 + 13*x^3 + 15*x^2 + 33*x
At this time, Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves are handled differently than elliptic curves:
sage: J = H.jacobian(); J
Jacobian of Hyperelliptic Curve over Finite Field of size 37 defined
by y^2 = x^5 + 12*x^4 + 13*x^3 + 15*x^2 + 33*x
sage: J = J(J.base_ring()); J
Set of rational points of Jacobian of Hyperelliptic Curve over Finite Field
of size 37 defined by y^2 = x^5 + 12*x^4 + 13*x^3 + 15*x^2 + 33*x
Points on the Jacobian are represented by Mumford’s polynomials. First we find a couple of points on the curve:
sage: P1 = H.lift_x(2); P1
(2 : 11 : 1)
sage: Q1 = H.lift_x(10); Q1
(10 : 18 : 1)
Observe that 2 and 10 are the roots of the polynomials in x, respectively:
sage: P = J(P1); P
(x + 35, y + 26)
sage: Q = J(Q1); Q
(x + 27, y + 19)
sage: P + Q
(x^2 + 25*x + 20, y + 13*x)
sage: (x^2 + 25*x + 20).roots(multiplicities=False)
[10, 2]
Frobenius satisfies
on the Jacobian of this reduction and the order of the Jacobian is \(N = 1904\).

Bases:

,SchemeMorphism
An element of a Jacobian defined over a field, i.e. in \(J(K) = \mathrm{Pic}^0_K(C)\).
- scheme()#
Return the scheme this morphism maps to; or, where this divisor lives.
Warning
Although a pointset is defined over a specific field, the scheme returned may be over a different (usually smaller) field. The example below demonstrates this: the pointset is determined over a number field of absolute degree 2 but the scheme returned is defined over the rationals.
