Essential dimension of cubics

Essential dimension of cubics
Essential dimension of cubics
In this paper, we compute the essential dimension of the functor of cubics in three variables up to linear changes of coordinates when the base field has characteristic different from 2 and 3. For this, we use canonical pencils of cubics, Galois descent techniques, and the basic material on essential dimension developed in [G. Berhuy, G. Favi, Doc. Math. 8 (2003) 279–330] which is based on Merkurjev's notes [Essential dimension, 1999].

Abstract

In this paper, we compute the essential dimension of the functor of cubics in three variables up to linear changes of coordinates when the base field has characteristic different from 2 and 3. For this, we use canonical pencils of cubics, Galois descent techniques, and the basic material on essential dimension developed in [G. Berhuy, G. Favi, Doc. Math. 8 (2003) 279–330] which is based on Merkurjev's notes [Essential dimension, 1999].
