How can we compute the order of 1-form on Riemann surfaces

Let X be a hyperellictic curve defined by $y^2=h(x)$. Let $\pi:X\rightarrow\mathbb{P}^1$ be the double covering map seding $(x,y)$ to $x$. Let $\omega=\pi^*(dx/h(x))$. How can we compute the orders of ...

Real part of integral over holomorphic 1-form is zero implies the one-form is zero

Suppose we are working on a Riemann Surface $X$, assume of genus g $\geq$ 1. Let $\omega$ be a holomorphic 1-form on $X$, with $$ \textrm{Re} \int_\gamma \omega = 0$$ for every closed contour ...

Show that $d\log f$ is a 1-current on a 1-dimensional complex manifold

I am having trouble with this problem (and it might be because I have the formulation slightly off). I need to show that $d\log f$ is a 1-current on a 1-dimensional complex manifold $M$. This means ...

Residues of a meromorphic differential on some particular points

Let $X$ be a compact Riemann surface, $\omega$ a meromorphic differential on $X$ and $f$ a meromorphic function on $X$ with poles only over the points $P_1,\dots,P_d$. The product $\;f\cdot\omega\;$ ...

What exactly does it mean to say that “functions cannot be integrated on Riemann surfaces”?

I've seen statements of this sort used to motivate the introduction of differential forms, and I'm not sure exactly what's meant. Obviously if you start by defining differentiation as an operation ...

Why is this integral zero? (Inner product between two 1-forms on a Riemann surface)

I have a quick question regarding the proof of Proposition II.3.2 in Farkas & Kra (pg. 40). The proposition is that if $\alpha$ is a square-integrable, $C^1$ 1-form, then $\alpha$ lives in a ...

elementary questions about differential forms

QUESTION 1: So I know that if $\omega$ is an alternating $p$-form for odd $p$ on some vector space $V$, then $\omega\wedge\omega = 0$. But...isn't the same true for any $p$? Ie, take for example $p ...

Independence of coordinate charts in the definition of the order of a pole of a meromorphic 1-form on a Riemann surface

I am currently reading Forster. Let $X$ be a Riemann suface, and $Y$ an open subset of $X$. Assume we have a meromorphic 1-form $\omega \in \Omega(Y \setminus \{a\})$ with a pole at $a \in Y$. One ...

Holomorphic 1-forms in $y^2-(z-a_1)\ldots(z-a_n)$

I know that the surface $y^2-(z-a_1)\ldots(z-a_n)$ is a Riemann Surface (that is the Riemann surface of $\sqrt{P(z)}$ with $P(z)=(z-a_1)\ldots(z-a_n)$) of genus $g$ and that ...
