## Automorphism groups of curves

#### Michael ZieveUniversity of Michigan

Curves with unusually large automorphism groups tend to have other desirable features as well (for instance, they often have many rational points). I will present joint work with Bob Guralnick, in which we study which groups occur as these "unusually large"
automorphism groups, and which curves they act on.
