Özet

We give a brief survey of the so-called Fenchel's problem for the projective plane, that is the problem of existence of finite Galois coverings of the complex projective plane branched along a given divisor and prove the following result: Let p, q be two integers greater than 1 and C be an irreducible plane curve. If there is a surjection of the fundamental group of the complement of C into a free product of cyclic groups of orders p and q, then there is a finite Galois covering of the projective plane branched along C with any given branching index.
