title = "The lefschetz property for families of curves",

abstract = "By the Lefschetz hyperplane theorem, if X is a smooth quasi-projective variety and C a general curve section of X then the fundamental group of C surjects onto the fundamental group of X. Here we consider when this property holds for a general member of an arbitrary family of curves that covers X. The most interesting case is families of rational curves.",
