Title:Galois groups of Mori polynomials, semistable curves and monodromy
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker: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".
