Abstract

Given a triple covering $X$ of genus $g$ of a general (in the sense of Brill-Noether) curve $C$ of genus $h$, we show the existence of base-point-free pencils of degree $d$ which are not composed with the triple covering for any $d\geq g-[(3h+1)/2]-1$ by utilizing some enumerative methods and computations. We also discuss about the sharpness of our main result and the so-called Castelnuovo-Severi bound by exhibiting some examples.
