Numerical verification of Beilinson's conjecture for K_2 of hyperelliptic curves.

Dokchitser, T. and de Jeu, R. and Zagier, D. (2006) 'Numerical verification of Beilinson's conjecture for K_2 of hyperelliptic curves.', Compositio mathematica., 142 (2). pp. 339-373.


We construct families of hyperelliptic curves over Q of arbitrary genus g with (at least) g integral elements in K-2. We also verify the Beilinson conjectures about K-2 numerically for several curves with g = 2, 3, 4 and 5. The first few sections of the paper also provide an elementary introduction to the Beilinson conjectures for K-2 of curves.
