Group Actions and Covering Maps

Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 202)


In the preceding chapter, we introduced covering spaces, and answered the isomorphism question for coverings: two coverings of the same space are isomorphic if and only if they induce the same conjugacy class of subgroups of the fundamental group of the base. In this chapter, we study the question of existence of coverings.
