Definition
This table contains equations satisfied by the Igusa Invariants of genus $2$ curves with $(n,n)$ split Jacobians. More precisely, let $C$ be a genus $2$ curve, $Y^2 = f(X)$ a model thereof, $[I_2:I_4:I_6:I_8:I_{10}]$ be the Igusa invariants of this curve, and $(i_1,i_2,i_3)=(144 I_4/I_2^2,-1728(I_2 I_4-3 I_6)/I_2^3,486 I_{10}/I_2^5)$ the absolute invariants. If $\text{Jac}(C)$ is optimally $(n,n)$-split then its absolute invariants satisfy the equation $\phi_n=0$ with $\phi_n$ in this table.
Parameters
