**Improvement of Thériault Algorithm of Index Calculus for Jacobian of Hyperelliptic Curves of Small Genus**

*Ko-ichi Nagao*

**Abstract: **Gaudry present a variation of index calculus attack for solving the
DLP in the Jacobian of hyperelliptic curves. Harley and Thériault
improve these kind of algorithm. Here, we will present a variation of
these kind of algorithm, which is faster than previous ones.
Its complexity is $O(2-\frac{2}{g}+\epsilon)$.
Recently, P. Gaudry and E. Thomé
http://eprint.iacr.org/2004/153/
present the algorithm, whose complexity is same as our results.
So I submit my manuscript to this eprint archive.
