Abstract: A rational function on a real algebraic curve $ C$ is said to be separating if it takes real values only at real points. Such a function gives rise to a covering $ \mathbb{R} C\to \mathbb{R}\mathbb{P}^1$. Let $ A_1,\dots ,A_n$ be connected components of $ \mathbb{R} C$. In a recent paper, M. Kummer and K. Shaw defined the separating semigroup of $ C$ as the set of all sequences $ (d_1(f),\dots ,d_n(f))$ where $ f$ is a separating function and $ d_i$ is the degree of the restriction of $ f$ to $ A_i$.

Here, the separating semigroups for hyperelliptic curves and for genus 3 curves are described.
