Abstract We describe a probability distribution on isomorphism classes of principally quasi-polarized $p$-divisible groups over a finite field $k$ of characteristic $p$ which can reasonably be thought of as a ‘uniform distribution’, and we compute the distribution of various statistics ($p$-corank, $a$-number, etc.) of $p$-divisible groups drawn from this distribution. It is then natural to ask to what extent the $p$-divisible groups attached to a randomly chosen hyperelliptic curve… Expand
Proportion of ordinarity in some families of curves over finite fields
A curve over a field of characteristic $p$ is called ordinary if the $p$-torsion of its Jacobian as large as possible, that is, an $\mathbb{F}_p$ vector space of dimension equal to its genus. In thisExpand

We consider the distribution of $p$ -power group schemes among the torsion of abelian varieties over finite fields of characteristic $p$ , as follows. Fix natural numbers $g$ and $n$ , and letExpand
Curves in characteristic 2 with non-trivial 2-torsion
This paper extends the observation ofais, Ellenberg and Zureick-Brown that over finite fields of characteristic two, all sufficiently general smooth plane projective curves of a given odd degree admit a non-trivial rational $2-torsion point on their Jacobian to curves given by Laurent polynomials with a fixed Newton polygon.

Smooth curves in toric surfaces (Les courbes lisses dans les surfaces toriques)
(assumed to be two-dimensional) of f . The earliest such connection is surprisingly old, dating back to 1893, when Baker observed [Bak93] that the geometric genus of Uf is bounded by the number ofExpand
Counting Semilinear Endomorphisms Over Finite Fields
For a finite field k and a triple of integers g \ge r \ge s \ge 0, we count the number of semilinear endomorphisms of a g-dimensional k-vector space which have rank r and stable rank s. SuchExpand
Hasse-Witt and Cartier-Manin matrices: A warning and a request
Let X be a curve in positive characteristic. The Hasse-Witt matrix represents the action of the Frobenius operator on the cohomology group H^1(X,O_X). The Cartier-Manin matrix represents the actionExpand

Foliations in moduli spaces of abelian varieties
In this paper we study abelian varieties and p-divisible groups in characteristic P Even though a non-trivial deformation of an abelian variety can produce a non trivial Galois-representation, say onExpand
On the Jacobian varieties of hyperelliptic curves over fields of characteristic p > 2
It is well known that an Abelian variety X of dimension g defined over a field K of characteristic p > 0 yields a p-divisible group X(p) of dimension g and of height 2g. Let I’ be the formal groupExpand

The p-rank strata of the moduli space of hyperelliptic curves
Abstract We prove results about the intersection of the p -rank strata and the boundary of the moduli space of hyperelliptic curves in characteristic p ⩾ 3 . This yields a strong technique thatExpand

A short guide to p-torsion of abelian varieties in characteristic p
