Every smooth minimal complex algebraic surface of general type, X, may be mapped into a moduli space, Mc2 1 (X),c2(X) , of minimal surfaces of general type, all of which have the same Chern numbers. Using the braid group and braid monodromy, we construct infinitely many new examples of pairs of minimal surfaces of general type which have the same Chern(More)
