Rational Points on Curves of Genus 2: Experiments and Speculations

09221.StollMichael.ExtAbstract.2124.pdf (0.2 MB)


I will present results of computations providing statistics on rational points on (small) curves of genus 2 and use them to present several conjectures. Some of them are based on heuristic considerations, others are not.
