Abstract

Darmon outlined a program which is suited to potentially resolving one parameter families of generalized Fermat equations. He gave explicit descriptions of Frey representations and conductor calculations for Fermat equations of signature (p,p,r). Somewhat less explicit results are stated for signature (r,r,p), and even less for signature (q,r,p).
 
For the equation (r,r,p), there are at least three competing Frey curve constructions: superelliptic curves of hypergeometric type due to Darmon, hyperelliptic curves due to Kraus, and elliptic curves with models over totally real fields due to Freitas.
 
I will survey these Frey curve constructions and end by giving explicit Frey hyperelliptic curves for signatures (2,r,p) and (3,5,p).
