On monodromies of holomorphic families of Riemann surfaces and modular transformations

    • Published online: 01 November 1997

A locally non-trivial holomorphic family of Riemann surfaces over a hyperbolic Riemann surface B determines a homomorphism (monodromy) of the fundamental group of B to the modular group. We give a necessary condition for a homomorphism to be a mondromy of a holomorphic family of Riemann surfaces. And we estimate the number of holomorphic families in terms of topological information for holomorphic families over Riemann surfaces of genus 0.
