The unirationality of Hurwitz spaces
15.11.2018, 13:00 h, MPI für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften Leipzig, E1 05 (Leibniz-Saal)
The Hurwitz space H_(d,g) parametrizes d-sheeted simply branched covers of the projective line by smooth curves of genus g. In this talk, I will survey our knowledge on the unirationality of Hurwitz spaces and we will discuss some results in this direction.
