Description (last modified by )
Harvey's hypellfrob program is shipped with Sage but was not actually used to count points on hyperelliptic curves.
This ticket intends to fix that (and add several other minor improvements).

This looks good to me.

This ticket leads to some test failures (did you check long doctests?). Please fix...

 Status changed from positive_review to needs_work
I thought so... I'll try to fix the failures tonight.

 Dependencies set to #15108
 Work issues set to rebase tests on top of #15108
I think that the doctest failure are caused by #15108 which makes base extension of hyperellipticurves smarter and triggers use of the new code for hyperelliptic curves introduced here and which wasn't used for more general schemes... The fix should be trivial.

And of course I cannot built the latest versions of Sage on my laptop because of glibc's bug in scanf.

 Work issues rebase tests on top of #15108 deleted
Tests and some doc (trivially) updated. Passes all tests (on POWER7...).

For a potential reviewer, the ticket used to be positively reviewed, and the latest changes are really trivial, taking the inclusion of another ticket into account.

 Resolution set to fixed
 Status changed from positive_review to closed
When you only want the number of rational points (and not the complete zeta function) you can use a (g times) lower precision. In this case you shouldn't use .frobenius_polynomial but ._frobenius_matrix and compute the trace of this matrix.
It is not necessary to exclude the case n>2g, but in this case (and already for n>=g) it is probably better to use .frobenius_polynomial and compute the number of points by expanding a power series (as we discussed in Rennes).
So:
1) for n<g use ._frobenius_matrix to compute matrix F and compute the traces of F, ... ,F^{n. }
2) for n>=g use .frobenius_polynomial and compute the coefficients of the log of the zeta function.
Would you like to change this, or can I give it a try? (I'm at SAGE days this week, trying to do something useful)
