Hyperbolic uniformization of Fermat curves
- 91 Downloads
The ground-breaking research on the uniformization of curves was conducted at the beginning of the last century. Nevertheless, there are few examples in the literature of algebraic curves for which an explicit uniformization is known. In this article we obtain an explicit uniformization of the Fermat curves F N , for each \(N\geq 4\). The results presented here are based in part on an earlier study of the second author  in which each Riemann surface F N (ℂ) was described as a quotient of the complex disk by a Fuchsian group Γ.
