Endomorphism algebras of abelian varieties with special reference to superelliptic Jacobians

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This is (mostly) a survey article. We use an information about Galois properties of points of small order on an abelian variety in order to describe its endomorphism algebra over an algebraic closure of the ground field. We discuss in detail applications to jacobians of cyclic covers of the projective line.
