In this note we mainly consider abelian varieties isogenous to hyperelliptic Jacobians. In the first part we prove that a very general hyperelliptic Jacobian of genus g≥4is not isogenous to a non-hyperelliptic Jacobian.

We show that if a very general element of Yis dominated by the Jacobian of a curve Cand dimY≥2g, then Cis not hyperelliptic. In particular, if the general element in Yis simple, its Kummer variety does not contain rational curves.

Abstract

In this note we mainly consider abelian varieties isogenous to hyperelliptic Jacobians. In the first part we prove that a very general hyperelliptic Jacobian of genus g≥4is not isogenous to a non-hyperelliptic Jacobian. As a consequence we obtain that the intermediate Jacobian of a very general cubic threefold is not isogenous to a Jacobian. Another corollary tells that the Jacobian of a very general d-gonal curve of genus g≥4is not isogenous to a different Jacobian. In the second part we consider a closed subvariety Y⊂Agof the moduli space of principally polarized varieties of dimension g≥3. We show that if a very general element of Yis dominated by the Jacobian of a curve Cand dimY≥2g, then Cis not hyperelliptic. In particular, if the general element in Yis simple, its Kummer variety does not contain rational curves. Finally we show that a closed subvariety Y⊂Mgof dimension 2g−1such that the Jacobian of a very general element of Yis dominated by a hyperelliptic Jacobian is contained either in the hyperelliptic or in the trigonal locus.
