This study establishes a preliminary investigation of geometric objects that degenerate to nonplanar shapes, along with their Galois covers and groups. The study aims to determine the fundamental groups and signatures of the Galois covers of algebraic surfaces in general, as they are invariants of the classification of surfaces in the moduli space. The study investigates the tetrahedron and the double tetrahedron as first examples. The study’s findings can advance the classification of surfaces… Expand

On the $K^2$ of degenerations of surfaces and the multiple point formula
In this paper we study some properties of reducible surfaces, in particular of unions of planes. When the surface is the central fibre of an embedded flat degeneration of surfaces in a projectiveExpand
Braid monodromy factorization for a non-prime K3 surface branch curve
In this paper we consider a non-prime K3 surface of degree 16, and study a specific degeneration of it, known as the (2, 2)-pillow degeneration, [10].We study also the braid monodromy factorizationExpand
Plane curve complements and curves on Hurwitz spaces
We study rational curves in connguration spaces which is equivalent to studying bra-tions of plane curve complements. This is applied to the theory of Hurwitz spaces which are unramiied covers of theExpand
The fundamental groups of Galois covers of planar Zappatic deformations of type Ek
Using Moishezon–Teicher’s algorithm, it is proved that the Galois covers of the generic Zappatic deformations of type Ek are Galois groups. Expand
Projective degenerations of K3 surfaces, Gaussian maps, and Fano threefolds
SummaryIn this article we exhibit certain projective degenerations of smoothK3 surfaces of degree 2g−2 in ℙg (whose Picard group is generated by the hyperplane class), to a union of two rationalExpand
Fundamental group of Galois covers of degree 6 surfaces
Let $X$ be a surface of degree $5$, which is considered as a branch cover of $\mathbb{CP}^2$ with respect to a generic projection. The surface has a natural Galois cover with Galois group $S_n$. InExpand
Coxeter covers of the symmetric groups
Abstract We study Coxeter groups from which there is a natural map onto a symmetric group. Such groups have natural quotient groups related to presentations of the symmetric group on an arbitrary setExpand
Higher degree Galois covers of CP 1 ×T
Let T be a complex torus, and X the surface CP 1 × T. If T is embedded in CP n 1 then X may be embedded in CP 2n 1 . Let XGal be its Galois cover with respect to a generic projection to CP 2 . InExpand
Curves on K3 surfaces
We show that every projective K3 surface over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero contains infinitely many rational curves. For this, we introduce two new techniques in theExpand
On the moduli spaces of surfaces of general type
It is nowadays well known that there exists a coarse moduli space Wl for complete smooth curves of genus g, and that Wlg is a quasiprojective normal irreducible variety of dimension 3g — 3. RecentlyExpand
