Computing the Mordell-Weil rank . . .
We derive the equations necessary to perform a 2-descent on the Jacobians of curves of genus two with rational Weierstrass points. We compute the Mordell-Weil rank of the Jacobian of some genus two curves defined over the rationals, and discuss the practicality of using this method
