1997 On the Hasse-Witt invariants of modular curves
Pilar Bayer, Josep González
Experiment. Math. 6(1): 57-76 (1997).

Abstract

We briefly discuss the relationship between several characterizations of the Hasse--Witt invariant of curves in characteristic $p$ with the goal of computing its value in concrete instances. We study its asymptotic behaviour when dealing with the geometric fibres of curves of genus $\geq 2$ defined over the rationals. Numerical evidence gathered for several modular curves supports certain conjectural distribution laws.
