Flynn, E. V. (1996) The arithmetic of hyperelliptic curves. In: Algorithms in Algebraic Geometry. Progress in Mathematics, 143 . Birkhäuser, Boston, USA, pp. 165-175. ISBN 0-8176-5274-4



We summarise recent advances in techniques for solving Diophantine problems on hyperelliptic curves; in particular, those for finding the rank of the Jacobian, and the set of rational points on the curve.
