On the tangent space of the deformation functor of curves with automorphisms

Aristides Kontogeorgis

Vol. 1 (2007), No. 2, 119–161

We provide a method to compute the dimension of the tangent space to the global infinitesimal deformation functor of a curve together with a subgroup of the group of automorphisms. The computational techniques we developed are applied to several examples including Fermat curves, p-cyclic covers of the affine line and to Lehr–Matignon curves.
