## Abstract

### Anatoly Libgober

*Albanese varieties of cyclic covers of plane, abelian varieties*
of CM type and orbifold pencils

I'll descibe relation between Alexadner modules of plane algebraic curves and maps of their complements onto orbifolds. Key step is a description of Albanese variety of cyclic covers of the plane in terms of abelian varieties of CM type.
