Summary: In this article we study the discriminant of those \(K3\) surfaces with involution which were introduced and investigated by Matsumoto, Sasaki, and Yoshida [K. Matsumoto et al., Int. J. Math. 3, No. 1, 1–164 (1992; Zbl 0763.32016)]. We extend several classical results on the discriminant of elliptic curves to the discriminant of Matsumoto-Sasaki-Yoshida’s \(K3\) surfaces .
