In these lectures we give an introduction to the reduction theory of binary forms starting with quadratic forms with real coefficients, Hermitian forms, and then define the Julia quadratic for any degree $n$ binary form. A survey of a reduction algorithm over $\mathbb Z$ is described based on recent work of Cremona and Stoll. 
Self-inversive polynomials, curves, and codes
We study connections between self-inversive and self-reciprocal polynomials, reduction theory of binary forms, minimal models of curves, and formally self-dual codes. We prove that if $\mathcal X$ isExpand
On the field of moduli of superelliptic curves
A superelliptic curve $\X$ of genus $g\geq 2$ is not necessarily defined over its field of moduli but it can be defined over a quadratic extension of it. While a lot of work has been done by manyExpand
Height Estimates for Bianchi Groups
We study the action of Bianchi groups on the hyperbolic 3-space $$\mathbb {H}^3 $$ H 3 . Given the standard fundamental domain for this action and any point in $$ \mathbb {H}^3 $$ H 3 , we show thatExpand


On the reduction theory of binary forms
Cremona developed a reduction theory for binary forms of degree 3 and 4 with integer coefficients, the motivation in the case of quartics being to improve 2-descent algorithms for elliptic curvesExpand
Representation of unity by binary forms
In this paper, it is shown that if F(x , y) is an irreducible binary form with integral coefficients and degree $n \geq 3$, then provided that the absolute value of the discriminant of F is largeExpand
We consider representations of real forms of even degree as a linear combination of powers of real linear forms, counting the number of positive and negative coefficients. We show that the naturalExpand

In this paper we study the automorphism groups of real curves admitting a regular meromorphic function $f$ of degree $p$, so called real cyclic $p$-gonal curves. When $p=2$ the automorphism groups ofExpand
A reduction theory is developed for binary forms (homogeneous polynomials) of degrees three and four with integer coefficients. The resulting coefficient bounds simplify and improve on those in theExpand
Invariants of Binary Forms
Basic invariants of binary forms over ℂ up to degree 6 (and lower degrees) were constructed by Clebsch and Bolza in the 19-th century using complicated symbolic calculations. Igusa extended this toExpand
Quantum codes from superelliptic curves
This paper studies the construction of such codes from curves with automorphisms and the relation between the automorphism group of the curveX and the codes CX and QX. Expand

Part 1 Algebraic methods: finite fields p-adic fields Hilbert symbol quadratic forms over Qp, and over Q integral quadratic forms with discriminant +-1. Part 2 Analytic methods: the theorem onExpand

The minimal height of binary forms and moduli height for algebraic curves are defined and it is proved that the moduli Height of superelliptic curves $\mathcal H (f) \leq c_0 \tilde H ( f)$ where $c_0$ is a constant and $\tildeH$ the minimal Height of the corresponding binary form. Expand
Determining equations of families of cyclic curves
In previous work we determined automorphism groups of cyclic algebraic curves defined over fields of any odd characteristic. In this paper we determine parametric equations of families of curves forExpand
