Abstract

Let T be the complex projective torus, and X the surface 1 × T. Let XGal be its Galois cover with respect to a generic projection to 2. In this paper we compute the fundamental group of XGal, using the degeneration and regeneration techniques, the Moishezon-Teicher braid monodromy algorithm and group calculations. We show that π1(XGal) = 10.
