## On monodromy in families of elliptic curves over C

Moscow Mathematical Journal. 2019. Vol. 19. No. 3. P. 597–613.

We show that if we are given a smooth non-isotrivial family of curves of genus 1 over C with a smooth base B for which the general fiber of the mapping J : B → A 1 (assigning j-invariant of the fiber to a point) is connected, then the monodromy group of the family (acting on H1 (·, Z) of the fibers) coincides with SL(2, Z); if the general fiber has m > 2 connected components, then the monodromy group has index at most 2m in SL(2, Z). By contrast, in any family of hyperelliptic curves of genus g > 3, the monodromy group is strictly less than Sp(2g, Z). Some applications are given, including that to monodromy of hyperplane sections of Del Pezzo surfaces.

We show that the monodromy group acting on $H^1(\cdot,\mathbb Z)$ of a smooth
hyperplane section of a del Pezzo surface over $\mathbb C$ is the entire
group $\mathrm{SL}_2(\mathbb Z)$. For smooth surfaces with $b_1=0$ and hyperplane section
of genus $g>2$, there exist examples in which a similar assertion is
false. Actually, if hyperplane sections of ...

In a previous paper, the authors defined an equivariant version of the so-called Saito duality between the monodromy zeta functions as a sort of Fourier transform between the Burnside rings of an abelian group and of its group of characters. Here, a so-called enhanced Burnside ring Bˆ(G) of a finite group G is defined. An ...

Recently the second author and Van Proeyen proved the monodromy conjecture on topological zeta functions for all non-degenerate surface singularities. In this paper, we obtain higher-dimensional analogues of their results, which, in particular, prove the conjecture for all isolated singularities of 4 variables, as well as for many classes of non-isolated and higher-dimensional singularities. One ...

We generalize the Abel–Ruffini theorem to arbitrary dimension, i.e. classify general square systems of polynomial equations solvable by radicals. In most cases, they reduce to systems whose tuples of Newton polytopes have mixed volume not exceeding 4. The proof is based on topological Galois theory, which ensures non-solvability by any formula involving quadratures and single-valued ...

In this paper we prove the non-existence of Lagrangian embeddings of the Klein bottle K in R4 and CP2. We exploit the existence of a special embedding of K in a symplectic Lefschetz pencil pr:X→S2 and study its monodromy. As the main technical tool, we develop the combinatorial theory of mapping class groups. The results ...

We show that some hypergeometric monodromy groups in Sp(4,Z) split as free or amalgamated products and hence by cohomological considerations give examples of Zariski dense, non-arithmetic monodromy groups of real rank 2. In particular, we show that the monodromy of the natural quotient of the Dwork family of quintic threefolds in P^{4} splits as Z*Z/5. ...

We prove that the monodromy group of a reduced irreducible square system of general polynomial equations equals the symmetric group. This is a natural first step towards the Galois theory of general systems of polynomial equations, because arbitrary systems split into reduced irreducible ones upon monomial changes of variables.
In particular, our result proves the multivariate ...

We consider a generalization of Riemann–Hilbert problem on elliptic curves. For a given elliptic curve and irreducible representation of free group with two generators we construct explicitly a semistable vector bundle of degree zero obeying a logarithmic connection such that its monodromy over fundamental parallelogram is equivalent to given free group representation, monodromy along a−cycle is ...

Let $\bbk$ be a field of characteristic zero and $G$ be a finite group of automorphisms of projective plane over $\bbk$. Castelnuovo's criterion implies that the quotient of projective plane by $G$ is rational if the field $\bbk$ is algebraically closed. In this paper we prove that $\mathbb{P}^2_{\bbk} / G$ is rational for an arbitrary ...
