On a theorem of Coleman

Flynn, E. V. (1995) On a theorem of Coleman. Manuscripta Mathematica, 88 . pp. 447-456. ISSN 0025-2611



A simplified method of descent via isogeny is given for Jacobians of curves of genus 2. This method is then used to give applications of a theorem of Coleman for computing all of the rational points on certain curves of genus 2.
