Descent via (3,3)-isogeny on Jacobians of genus 2 curves

We give a parametrization of curves C of genus 2 with a maximal isotropic (ℤ/3)² in J[3], where J is the Jacobian variety of C, and develop the theory required to perform descent via (3,3)-isogeny. We apply this to several examples, where it is shown that non-reducible Jacobians have non-trivial 3-part of the Tate-Shafarevich group.
