This paper answers the question: what coverings over a topological torus can be induced from a covering over a space of dimension k? The answer to this question is then applied in algebro-geometric context to present obstructions to transforming an algebraic equation depending on several parameters to an equation depending on fewer parameters by means of a rational transformation.
