Jacobian varieties of Hurwitz curves with automorphism group $\mathrm{PSL}(2,q)$

Allison Fischer, Mouchen Liu and Jennifer Paulhus

Vol. 9 (2016), No. 4, 639–655
Abstract

The size of the automorphism group of a compact Riemann surface of genus g > 1 is bounded by 84(g 1). Curves with automorphism group of size equal to this bound are called Hurwitz curves. In many cases the automorphism group of these curves is the projective special linear group PSL(2,q). We present a decomposition of the Jacobian varieties for all curves of this type and prove that no such Jacobian variety is simple.
