On the Prym variety of genus 3 covers of genus 1 curvesArticle

Authors: Christophe Ritzenthaler ; Matthieu Romagny

    Given a generic degree-2 cover of a genus 1 curve D by a non hyperelliptic genus 3 curve C over a field k of characteristic different from 2, we produce an explicit genus 2 curve X such that Jac(C) is isogenous to the product of Jac(D) and Jac(X). This construction can be seen as a degenerate case of a result by Nils Bruin.
