Branched polynomial covering maps

    Research output: Book/ReportReport

    Abstract

    A Weierstrass polynomial with multiple roots in certain points leads to a branched covering map. With this as the guiding example, we formally define and study the notion of a branched polynomial covering map. We shall prove that many finite covering maps are polynomial outside a discrete branch set. Particular studies are made of branched polynomial covering maps arising from Riemann surfaces and from knots in the 3-sphere.
