Computing equations of curves with many points

Virgile Ducet and Claus Fieker

Abstract: We explain how to compute the equations of the abelian coverings of any curve defined over a finite field. Then we describe an algorithm which computes curves with many rational points with respect to their genus. The implementation of the algorithm provides 7 new records over F_2.
