# The cycle classes of divisorial Maroni loci

@article{Geer2015TheCC, title={The cycle classes of divisorial Maroni loci}, author={Gerard van der Geer and Alexis Kouvidakis}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry}, year={2015} }

We determine the cycle classes of effective divisors in the compactified Hurwitz spaces of curves of genus g with a linear system of degree d that extend the Maroni divisors on the open Hurwitz space. Our approach uses Chern classes associated to a global-to-local evaluation map of a vector bundle over a generic $P^1$-bundle over the Hurwitz space.
