 Deg2 Extension S.E.Fischer 12-07-2014 03:29 We can assume such a curve C as an extension F/G of degree 2 of a curve G of genus 1 as follows: G:= (x + y + x*y) * x*y + x + 1 ; F/G := z^2 * x + z + x^2 * y^2 . Defining equation Isabel Pirsic 06-18-2012 11:19 E.g., y4([0],[1,0],[3,1],[7,3]) = y^4 + (x+1)*y^2 + (x^3+x)*y +x^7+x^3

 Submitted by Everett Howe Date 04-14-2010 Reference Jean-Pierre SerreRational points on curves over finite fields. With contributions by Everett Howe, Joseph Oesterlé and Christophe Ritzenthaler. Edited by Alp Bassa, Elisa Lorenzo García, Christophe Ritzenthaler and René SchoofDocuments Mathématiques 18, Société Mathématique de France, Paris, 2020 Comments The Oesterlé bound. Here is a real Weil polynomial that we don't know how to eliminate: (x + 1) * (x + 2) * (x^2 + 2*x - 2) Tags Oesterlé bound
