Implementing 2-descent for Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves, by Michael Stoll
This work has now appeared in
Acta Arith. 98, 245-277 (2001) and so the preprint has been removed.
This paper gives a fairly detailed
description of an algorithm that computes (the size of) the 2-Selmer group
of the Jacobian of a hyperellitptic curve over Q. The curve is assumed
to have even genus or to possess a Q-rational Weierstraß point.
