  • The main theorem of this paper is that, for a general pair $ (A,X) $ of an (ample) hypersurface $ X $ in an Abelian Variety $ A $, the canonical map $ \Phi_X $ of $ X $ is birational onto its image if the polarization given by $ X $ is not principal (i.e., its Pfaffian $ d $ is not equal to $ 1 $).

    We also easily show that, setting $ g = dim (A) $, and letting $ d $ be the Pfaffian of the polarization given by $ X $, then if $ X $ is smooth and

    $ \Phi_X : X {\rightarrow } {\mathbb{P}}^{N: = g+d-2} $

    is an embedding, then necessarily we have the inequality $ d \geq g + 1 $, equivalent to $ N : = g+d-2 \geq 2 \ dim(X) + 1. $

    Hence we formulate the following interesting conjecture, motivated by work of the second author: if $ d \geq g + 1, $ then, for a general pair $ (A,X) $, $ \Phi_X $ is an embedding.
