Some packages in Magma which has been developed. They will be maintained and will eventually integrate the Magma official release. Please send comments and bugs to this email address. At the end of this section, you will find also some small programs or outputs related to articles. In my most recent articles, these data are directly stored on Arxiv as ancillary files.
Invariants and reconstruction of genus 2 hyperelliptic curves

This is a work in collaboration with R. Lercier. It has been implemented in Magma (v.2.13).

Invariants and reconstruction of genus 3 hyperelliptic curves

This is a work in collaboration with Reynald Lercier. It has been implemented in Magma (v.2.17).

Fast computation of isomorphisms of hyperelliptic curves

This is a work in collaboration with Reynald Lercier and Jeroen Sijsling.

Reconstructing plane quartics from their invariants

This is a work in collaboration with Reynald Lercier and Jeroen Sijsling.

Decomposing Jacobians via Galois covers

This is a work in collaboration with Elisa Lorenzo García, Davide Lombardo and Jeroen Sijsling.

Spanning the isogeny class of the power of an elliptic curve

This is a work in collaboration with Markus Kirschmer, Fabien Narbonne and Damien Robert.

  1. The Magma file to check the computation of the sign in Lemma 3.6 of A new proof of Thomae-like formula for non hyperelliptic genus 3 curves.
  2. The databases for p=11 and 13 (and the program to exploit them in Magma) and the statistics on the distributions of the trace for 7< p <59 of the article Parametrizing the moduli space of curves and application to smooth plane quartics over finite fields are contained in the following zip file.
  3. an implementation of an AGM algorithm for non-hyperelliptic curves of genus 3 has been worked out in collaboration with M. Fouquet and P. Gaudry. It has been implemented in Magma (v.2.09). This program does not work with the new version of MAGMA. You'll have to make changes in the definitions of the p-adic spaces.
  4. Here are several programs relative to the paper An explicit expression of Luroth invariant with Romain Basson, Reynald Lercier and Jeroen Sijsling. This Magma program provides a way to compute an expression of Luroth invariant and this is the final result. This Magma program generates random Luroth quartics of type L1 (with the notation of Ottaviani, Sernesi `On singular Luroth quartics') and this database contains 10,000 of them with rational coefficients. Finally this program checks that neither L1 nor L2 defines a new invariant. Note that they require the use of Echidna package available on this page.
  5. Magma programs to check the computations of Fast computation of isomorphisms of hyperelliptic curves and explicit descent with Reynald Lercier and Jeroen Sijsling: for Sections 1.5, 2.3.1 and 2.3.2: the programs, associated data and the package for genus 3 hyperelliptic curves; for Section 2.4; the general descent program, the resulting equation (8Mo) and the program to descend a particular example.
  6. Two programs related to On rationality of the intersection points of a line with a plane quartic with Roger Oyono: Computation of the correspondence curve in characteristic 2, Flexes in characteristic 3 (Maple 11).
  7. A program (collaboration with Philippe Trebuchet) in MAGMA which tests if a plane curve over a finite field is absolutely irreducible. It is based on E. Kaltofen article : Fast parallel absolute irreductibility testing, J. Symb. Comp. 1, (1985), 57-67.
  8. A program in MAGMA which computes the p-rank of the modular curves X(N).
  9. A basic program in MAGMA for computing the number of points on an elliptic curve with AGM as suggested by Jean-François Mestre.
