### Thetanulls of curves of small genus with automorphisms

*E. Previato, T. Shaska, G. S. Wijesiri*

#### Abstract

We study relations among the classical thetanulls of cyclic curves, namely curves $\X$ (of genus $g(\X )>1$ ) with an automorphism $\s$ such that $\s$ generates a normal subgroup of the group $G$ of automorphisms, and $g \left( \X/ \ \right) =0$. Relations between thetanulls and branch points of the projection are the

object of much classical work, especially for hyperelliptic curves, and of recent work, in the cyclic case. We determine the curves of genus 2 and 3 in the locus $\mathcal M_g (G, \textbf{C})$ for all $G$ that have a normal subgroup $\langle\s\rangle$ as above, and all possible signatures \textbf{C}, via relations among

their thetanulls.
