Let C: y2=f(x) be a hyperelliptic curve defined over ℚ. Let K be a number field and suppose f factors over K as a product of irreducible polynomials f=f1 f2 … fr. We shall define a ‘Selmer set’ corresponding to this factorization with the property that if it is empty, then C(ℚ)=∅. We shall demonstrate the effectiveness of our new method by solving the generalized Fermat equation with signature (3, 4, 5), which is unassailable via the previously existing methods.

Let \$K\$ be a totally real number field with narrow class number one and \$O_K\$ be its ring of integers. We prove that there is a constant \$B_K\$ depending only on \$K\$ such that for any prime exponent

### Descent on superelliptic curves

This paper defines a set which encapsulates information about local solubility of a particular collection of covers of a curve defined by an equation of the form y^q=f(x) and shows how to compute this set.
