Title: Torsion points on curves of the form y^n = x^d + 1
Abstract: The goal of this talk is to classify torsion points on the curve $y^n = x^d + 1$ over the complex numbers, where n, d are at least 2 and are coprime. We will motivate the central ideas of the proof by studying the proof of the result by Poonen and Stoll that the only torsion points on a generic hyperelliptic curve are the 2-torsion Weierstrass points. For our case, we will…
