The corresponce relates moduli spaces, Hodge structures, and more. The results have always seemed to me to be very special to this situation, but recently Donghai Pan has extended this to a more general correspondnece, between cyclic covers and pencils of Fermat hypersurfaces. In this talk I will describe some of his work. Cockins Hall 240 Department of Mathematics math@osu.edu America/New_York public
