Generalisation of the tetragonal construction
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractThe Donagi conjecture states that the Prym map is injective at a double cover of a curve if the curve does not admit a morphism of degree less or equal to 4 onto the projective line. The talk focusses on 2 subjects, I will explain why the existing proofs of the tetragonal construction do not generalize and then outline the proof of a generalization which give counterexamples to the conjecture. This is joint work with Elham Izadi.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
