Interpolation for restricted tangent bundles of general curves

Let q1,q2,,qn r be a general collection of points, and (C,p1,p2,,pn) a general marked curve of genus g. We determine when there exists a nondegenerate degree-d map f : C r such that f(pi) = qi for all i. This is a consequence of our main theorem, which states that the restricted tangent bundle fTr of a general curve of genus g, equipped with a general degree-d map f to r, satisfies the property of interpolation, i.e., that for a general effective divisor D of any degree on C, either H0(fTr(D)) = 0 or H1(fTr(D)) = 0. We also prove an analogous theorem for the twist fTr(1).
