N2 - We reconstruct Brumer’s family with 3-parameters of curves of genus two whose jacobian varieties admit a real multiplication of discriminant 5. Our method is based on the descent theory in geometric Galois theory which can be compared with a classical problem of Noether. Namely, we first construct a 3-parameter family of polynomials f(X) of degree 6 whose Galois group is isomorphic to the alternating group A5. Then we study the family of curves defined by Y2 = f(X), showing that they are equivalent to Brumer's family. The real multiplication will be described in three distinct ways, i.e., by Humbert's modular equation, by Poncelet's pentagon, and by algebraic correspondences.
