Given a finite morphism of smooth curves one can canonically associate it a polarized abelian variety, the Prym variety. This induces a map from the moduli space of coverings to the moduli space of polarized abelian varieties, known as the Prym map. In this talk we will consider the Prym map between the moduli space of double coverings over a genus g curve ramified at r points, and the moduli space of polarized abelian varieties of dimension (g-1+r)/2 with polarization of type D. We will show the generic injectivity of the Prym map in the cases (a) g=2, r=6 and (b) g=5, r=2. In the first case the proof is constructive and can be extended to the range r > max{6, 2(g+2)/3}. This a joint work with J.C. Naranjo.
