Full-text: Open access


The Castelnuovo-Weil lattice of a curve refers to the ring of correspondence of the curve or the endomorphism ring of its Jacobian variety, viewed as a lattice with respect to the natural trace form. The main subject is the minimal norm $\mu (C)$ of this lattice, and we discuss the question as to whether $\mu (C) = 2g$ holds true.
