Periodic continued fractions and hyperelliptic curves
Abstract
We consider a special class of periodic continued fractions (called alphafractions) and discuss the related algebraic and geometric problems. A classical description of the Jacobi variety of a hyperelliptic curve due to Jacobi naturally appears in this context.
