Modular polynomials for genus 2

Reinier Broker and Kristin Lauter

Abstract: Modular polynomials are an important tool in many algorithms involving elliptic curves. In this article we generalize this concept to the genus 2 case. We give the theoretical framework describing the genus 2 modular polynomials and discuss how to explicitly compute them.
