“Xiaos Conjecture on Canonically Fibered Surfaces”

In 1988, Gang Xiao proposed a list of open problems on algebraic surfaces. Many of these remain open to this day. One of the problems concerns the maximal relative genus of a canonically fibered surface. In this talk, I will talk about my proof of this conjecture.
