Minimal SNC Models of Hyperelliptic Curves over DVRs via Cluster Pictures

Lead Research Organisation: King's College London
Department Name: Mathematics


The minimal SNC model of a hyperelliptic curve over a DVR with semistable reduction is known and can be described explicitly using so-called cluster pictures. I aim to calculate the minimal SNC model of more general hyperelliptic curves, those with tame potentially semistable reduction, also via cluster pictures - beginning with curves over DVRs with algebraically closed residue fields, and hopefully moving onto a general DVR. This will have applications in the study of Galois representations of hyperelliptic curves.
