## Abstract

Lei ℓ be an odd prime. Let K be a field of characteristic zero with algebraic closure K_{a}. Let n, in ≥ 4 be integers that are not divisible by ℓ Let f(x), h(x) ∈ K [x] be irreducible separable polynomials of degree n and m respectively. Suppose that the Galois group Gal(f) of f acts doubly transitively on the set R_{f} of roots of f and that Gal(/z) acts doubly transitively on R_{h} as well. Let J(C _{f,ℓ}) and J(C_{h, ℓ}) be the Jacobians of the superelliptic curves C_{f,ℓ}: y_{ℓ} = f(x) and C _{h,ℓ}: y^{ℓ} = h(x) respectively. We prove that J(C_{f,ℓ}) and J(C_{hℓ}) are not isogenous over K _{a} if the splitting fields of / and h are linearly disjoint over K and K contains a primitive ℓth root of unity.
