    Lecture 1 What are Riemann surfaces? Problem: Natural algebraic expressions have ‘ambiguities’ in their solutions; that is, they de ne multi-valued rather than single-valued functions. In the real case, there is usually an obvious way to x this ambiguity, by selecting one branch of the function. For example, consider f(x) = p x.

Guralnick, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, and John . $\begingroup$ Dear Mark: I am sure there are many excellent graduate students at Chicago in algebra, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, analysis, differential geometry, logic, number theory, PDEs, probability, and representation theory who do not know what a quasi-isometry is. Moreover, you must know this is the case, since you wouldn't use quasi-isometries in a colloquium talk without.

Get this from a library. Symmetric and alternating groups as monodromy groups of Riemann surfaces 1: Generic covers and covers with many branch points. [Robert M Guralnick; John Shareshian].

The authors consider indecomposable degree \(n\) covers of Riemann surfaces with monodromy group an alternating or symmetric group of degree \(d\). They show that if the cover has five or more branch points then the genus grows rapidly with \(n\) unless either \(d = n\) or the curves have genus zero, there are precisely five branch points and.

Symmetric and alternating groups as monodromy groups of Riemann surfaces I: generic covers and covers with many branch points. I would proceed following the description you give in the following way, first the branch points are $0,-1$ and $\infty$, so if we shade the points that are sent to the upper plane under the map $$ z \to \frac{4z^2(z-1)^2}{(2z-1)^2} $$ we obtain a triangulation of the sphere were the ramification points will be placed in the vertex and the.

The fact that symmetric groups of all orders can appear as monodromy groups of Riemann surfaces of genus zero is a long-standing one. In this paper, a further search has been made in order to determine which linite groups G can and cannot appear as monodromy groups of Riemann surfaces of genus zero.

This book deals with automorphism groups of compact Riemann surfaces, of genus at least two, viewed as factor groups of Fuchsian groups. The author uses modern methods from computational group theory and representation theory, providing classifications of all automorphism groups up to genus Cited by: with Riemann surfaces.

Riemann surfaces are central in mathematics because of the multiple connections between complex analysis, algebraic geometry, hyperbolic geometry, group theory, topology etc. The main focus is the connection of holomorphic morphisms with branched coverings, and the use of permutation groups in classifying these Size: KB.

Fuchsian groups, and we also prove an analogue of Higman’s conjecture for symmetric quotients, determining precisely which Fuchsian groups surject to all but finitely many symmetric groups (Theorem ). These results have applications to monodromy groups of.

Every compact Riemann surface of genus greater than 1 (with its usual metric of constant curvature −1) is a locally symmetric space but not a symmetric space. An example of a non-Riemannian symmetric space is anti-de Sitter space.

The classical fact concerning symmetric surfaces is () Harnack's Theorem. IF J is an anticonformal involution on the closed Riemann surface S of genus g, then the fixed point set of J is either empty or consists of 5+1 disjoint simple curves cQ,cs where 0.

In this context the pertinence of the results in [5], in this paper and in [6] relies on the fact that the most common Galois groups are the symmetric and the alternating groups [15].

Finally, we. Abstract. Excluding a precise list of groups like alternating, symmetric, cyclic and dihedral, from 1st year algebra (§), we expect there are only finitely many monodromy groups of primitive genus 0 by: 3.

Neumann Received May 3, The genus of a finite group G is the smallest genus of its Cayley by: AroundKlein and Poincaré studied monodromy groups for linear differential equations on compact Riemann surfaces.

See Klein [4] and Poincaré [9, 10]. Roughly stated, there were two fundamental problems: (A) given the DE, to calculate the monodromy group; (B) to determine all DE [of a certain type] having a given monodromy group.

The complex plane C is the most basic Riemann surface. The map f(z) = z (the identity map) defines a chart for C, and {f} is an atlas for map g(z) = z * (the conjugate map) also defines a chart on C and {g} is an atlas for charts f and g are not compatible, so this endows C with two distinct Riemann surface structures.

In fact, given a Riemann surface X and its atlas A, the. Goals of the Lecture: To get an idea of the classification of Riemann surfaces that can be arrived at based on the fundamental group, using the theory of covering spaces - To get introduced to the notions of: moduli problem, moduli space, number of moduli, fine and coarse classification, and to write these down for simple Riemann surfaces Topics: Biholomorphic map or isomorphism of Riemann.

Study 79 contains a collection of papers presented at the Conference on Discontinuous Groups and Ricmann Surfaces at the University of Maryland, MayThe papers, by leading authorities, deal mainly with Fuchsian and Kleinian groups, Teichmüller spaces, Jacobian varieties, and quasiconformal mappings.

These topics are intertwined, representing a common meeting of algebra. History of Riemann surfaces Daniel Ying ∗ Octo Figure 1: Bernhard Riemann, () Abstract Riemann surfaces have an appealing feature to mathematicians (and hope-fully to non-mathematicians as well) in that they appear in a variety of mathe-matical fields.
