Dihedral Groups of Order 2p of Automorphisms of Compact Riemann Surfaces of Genus p – 1

  • Qingjie Yang (a1) and Weiting Zhong (a1)
Abstract

In this paper we prove that there is only one conjugacy class of dihedral group of order 2p in the 2(p – 1) × 2(p – 1) integral symplectic group that can be realized by an analytic automorphism group of compact connected Riemann surfaces of genus p – 1. A pair of representative generators of the realizable class is also given.
