# On triangular (Dn)-actions on cyclic p-gonal Riemann surfaces

Ewa Tyszkowska

Abstract. A compact Riemann surface $$X$$ of genus $$g\gt 1$$ which has a conformal automorphism $$\rho$$ of prime order $$p$$ such that the orbit space $$X/ \langle \rho \rangle$$ is the Riemann sphere is called cyclic $$p$$-gonal. Exceptional points in the moduli space $$\mathcal{M}_g$$ of compact Riemann surfaces of genus $$g$$ are unique surface classes whose full group of conformal automorphisms acts with a triangular signature. We study symmetries of exceptional points in the cyclic $$p$$-gonal locus in $$\mathcal{M}_g$$ for which $$\text{Aut}(X)/ \langle \rho \rangle$$ is a dihedral group $$D_n$$.

Keywords: Riemann surface, symmetry, triangle group, Fuchsian group, NEC group.
