“Separated Belyĭ Maps” by Zachary Scherr and Michael E. Zieve

Zachary Scherr and his graduate advisor Michael E. Zieve have a new paper on the ArXiv entitled “Separated Belyĭ Maps”.

Abstract. We construct Belyĭ maps having specified behavior at finitely many points. Specifically, for any curve C defined over \overline{\mathbb Q}, and any disjoint finite subsets S, T \subset C(\overline{\mathbb Q}), we construct a finite morphism f: C \to \mathbb P^1 such that f ramifies at each point in S, the branch locus of f is \{0,1, \infty \}, and f(T) is disjoint from \{0,1, \infty \}. This refines a result of Mochizuki’s. We also prove an analogous result over fields of positive characteristic, and in
addition we analyze how many different Belyi maps f are required to imply the above conclusion for a single C and S and all sets T \subset C(\overline{\mathbb Q}) \backslash S of prescribed cardinality.
