A family of surfaces constructed from genus 2 curves


Journal Article

We consider the deformations of the two-dimensional complex analytic variety constructed from a genus 2 Riemann surface by attaching its self-product to its Jacobian in an elementary way. The deformations are shown to be unobstructed, the variety smooths to give complex projective manifolds whose invariants are computed and whose images under Albanese maps (re)verify an instance of the Hodge conjecture for certain abelian fourfolds. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
