The canonical pencils on Horikawa surfaces

Denis Auroux

Geometry & Topology 10 (2006) 2173–2217

arXiv: math.GT/0605692

Abstract

We calculate the monodromies of the canonical Lefschetz pencils on a pair of homeomorphic Horikawa surfaces. We show in particular that the (pluri)canonical pencils on these surfaces have the same monodromy groups, and are related by a “partial twisting” operation.
