ABSTRACT
For every g >= 3, we show there exists a hyperelliptic curve ofgenus g with p-rank g - 3 and a-number 1 in characteristic p when p = 3 orp = 5. The method of proof is to show that a generic point of the moduli spaceof hyperelliptic curves of genus 3 and p-rank 0 has a-number 1. When p = 3,we also show that this moduli space is irreducible.
