comment What's the name of this branched covering?
Dear @paul, thank you for your comment! :) I guess in that case one can also state that the genus of the surface will be the ceiling of $\frac{\text{deg}(f)-2}{2}$.

Hi @Balarka, is that true? For example, you can exhibit any Riemann surface as a branched double cover of $\mathbb{CP}^1$ (to exhibit this geometrically, put a skewer symmetrically through the surface and let $\mathbb{Z}/2$ act as rotation by 180 degrees about the skewer).

comment What is the $L^p$-norm of the (uncentered) Hardy-Littlewood maximal function?
Thank you so much for your answer, Mark! (I'm very sorry I didn't see it until now.) I really, really appreciate that you took the time to write such a detailed answer. Thank you!
