    • Maps between curves and arithmetic obstructions 

      Sutherland AV; Voloch JF (2017)
      Let X and Y be curves over a finite field. In this article we explore methods to determine whether there is a rational map from Y to X by considering L-functions of certain covers of X and Y and propose a specific family ...
