 Frobenius Distribution for Quotients of Fermat Curves of Prime Exponent Let $\mathcal{C}$ denote the Fermat curve over $\mathbb{Q}$ of prime exponent $\ell$. The Jacobian $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C})$ of~$\mathcal{C}$ splits over $\mathbb{Q}$ as the product of Jacobians $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$, $1\leq k\leq \ell-2$, where $\mathcal{C}_k$ are curves obtained as quotients of $\mathcal{C}$ by certain subgroups of automorphisms of $\mathcal{C}$. It is well known that $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$ is the power of an absolutely simple abelian variety $B_k$ with complex multiplication. We call degenerate those pairs $(\ell,k)$ for which $B_k$ has degenerate CM type. For a non-degenerate pair $(\ell,k)$, we compute the Sato-Tate group of $\operatorname{Jac}(\mathcal{C}_k)$, prove the generalized Sato-Tate Conjecture for it, and give an explicit method to compute the moments and measures of the involved distributions. Regardless of $(\ell,k)$ being degenerate or not, we also obtain Frobenius equidistribution results for primes of certain residue degrees in the $\ell$-th cyclotomic field. Key to our results is a detailed study of the rank of certain generalized Demjanenko matrices. Keywords:Sato-Tate group, Fermat curve, Frobenius distributionCategories:11D41, 11M50, 11G10, 14G10
