### Curves of genus 2 with real multiplication by a square root of 5

Abstract:

Our aim in this work is to produce equations for curves of genus 2 whose Jacobians have real multiplication (RM) by $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{5})$, and to examine the conjecture that any abelian surface with RM by $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{5})$ is isogenous to a simple factor of the Jacobian of a modular curve $X_0(N)$ for some $N$. To this end, we review previous work in this area, and are able to use a criterion due to Humbert in the last century to produce a family of curves of genus 2 with RM by \$\mathb...
