Computing period matrices and the Abel-Jacobi map of superelliptic curves
In , we present an algorithm for the computation of period matrices and the Abel-Jacobi map of complex superelliptic curves given by an equation y m = f (x). It relies on rigorous numerical integration of differentials between Weierstrass points, which is done using Gauss method if the curve is hyperelliptic (m = 2) or the Double-Exponential method. The algorithm is implemented and makes it possible to reach thousands of digits accuracy even on large genus curves.
