Title: Galois groups of Mori polynomials, semistable curves and monodromy Algebra and Number Theory Seminar Yuri Zarhin, Penn State University We study the monodromy of a certain class of semistable hyperelliptic curves that was introduced by Shigefumo Mori forty years ago. Using ideas of Chris Hall, we prove that the corresponding monodromy groups are (almost) as large as possible".
