    Abstract

    We study Humbert's modular equation which characterizes curves of genus two having real multiplication by the quadratic order of discriminant 5. We give it a simple, but general expression as a polynomial in x1;.. .; x6 the coordinate of the Weierstrass points, and show that it is invariant under a transitive permutation group of degree 6 isomorphic to S{fraktur}5. We also prove the rationality of the hypersurface in P5 defined by the generalized modular equation.
