Line 1: Line 1:
Put together a p-adic heights calculator for hyperelliptic curves. The main goal was to put together a p-adic heights calculator for hyperelliptic curves. Before we have extensions of p-adics, we could:
 * Write a tiny integrals calculator for Weierstrass residue discs.
 * Expand a rational function with poles only in Weierstrass residue discs as a power series.
 * Implement Besser's techniques for calculating with local indices.
Line 3: Line 6:
Develop a version of Harvey's algorithm for computing Coleman integrals. After that, we could:
 * Implement full Coleman integration between points defined over extension fields. (Beware: this requires a semilinear version of the fundamental linear system.)
Line 5: Line 9:
Come up with a good framework for doing iterated Coleman integrals (for use in the nonabelian Chabauty method). Longer term projects could include:
 * Develop a version of Harvey's algorithm for computing Coleman integrals.
