Normal forms of smooth plane quartics and their restrictions

Takahashi Tadashi

ABSTRACT:     It is well known that smooth plane quartic curves in a two-dimensional complex projective space are curves of genus three and that the dimension of the parameters of the defining equation is less than seven. We show a process for obtaining the normal forms and their restrictions. For a homogeneous 4th-degree polynomial over the complex numbers, the vanishing set ℂ of the homogeneous polynomial in the complex projective plane ℙ2 is a curve of genus three, and such curves depend on six-dimensional parameters. By using the Gröbner basis of the elimination ideal, we show the restrictions on smooth plane quartics.
