Some stable vector bundles with reducible theta divisor

  • Arnaud Beauville


 Let C be a curve of genus g and L a line bundle of degree 2g on C. Let ML be the kernel of the evaluation map \(\). We show that when L is general enough, the rank g bundle ML and its exterior powers are stable, but admit a reducible theta divisor.
