Invariant theory of $\bigwedge^3(9)$ and genus-2 curves

Eric M. Rains and Steven V Sam

Vol. 12 (2018), No. 4, 935–957
Abstract

Previous work established a connection between the geometric invariant theory of the third exterior power of a 9-dimensional complex vector space and the moduli space of genus-2 curves with some additional data. We generalize this connection to arbitrary fields, and describe the arithmetic data needed to get a bijection between both sides of this story.
