A strategy and a new operator to generate covariants in small characteristic
Publications mathématiques de Besançon. Algèbre et théorie des nombres (2018), pp. 85-99.

We present some new results about covariants in small characteristic. In Section 1, we give a method to construct covariants using an approach similar to Sturmfels. We apply our method to find a separating system of covariants for binary quartics in characteristic 3. In Section 2, we construct a new operator on covariants when the characteristic is small compared to the degree of the form.

Dans la section 1, nous expliquons une méthode pour construire des covariants en utilisant une approche similaire à celle de Sturmfels. Nous appliquons notre méthode pour obtenir un système séparant pour les covariants des formes quartiques binaires en caractéristique 3. Dans la section 2, nous construisons un nouvel opérateur sur les covariants lorsque la caractéristique est petite par rapport au degré des formes.
