## 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.
