## Abstract

Given a natural number p, a projective irreducible smooth algebraic curve V defined over R is called p-hyperelliptic if there exists a birational isomorphism of V, of order

2, such that V/ has genus p. This work is concerned with the existence of such curves according to their genus g and the number k of connected components of V(R).

We prove that Harnack’s condition 1 k g is sufficient if V \ V (R) is connected.

In case V \ V (R) non-connected, the following conditions 1 k g + 1 (g + k 1(2)), and either k = g + 1 − 2q for some q, 0 q p, or k 2p + 2 with = 1 for even p,

= 2 for odd p, are necessary and sufficient for the existence of the curve.
