If you have a question about this talk, please contact Valentin HÃ¼bner. There is a simple analogy between the algebraic theory of field extensions and the topological theory of covering spaces: this is particularly nice when we consider function fields over the complex numbers. In the first half of the talk I will try and exhibit this analogy with some examples that are easy to visualize; this should be accessible to most undergraduates and should show the motivation behind the study of Riemann Surfaces. In the second half, I will try to make this analogy more precise and talk about maps of Riemann surfaces; this will be more suitable for those who already have some basic knowledge of these ideas. This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- Guy Emerson's list
