Stability theorems for homology of Hurwitz spaces |
Abstract:
A Hurwitz space H_{G,n} is an algebraic variety
parametrizing branched covers of the projective line with some fixed
finite Galois group G. Hurwitz spaces have been much studied,
especially in the classical case where G is a symmetric group and the
monodromy around each branch point is a transposition in G. We will
prove that, under some hypotheses on G, the rational i'th homology of
the Hurwitz spaces stabilizes when the number of branch points is
sufficiently large compared to i. |
