Around the Chevalley–Weil theorem cover

A subscription is required to access this article.


We present a proof of the Chevalley–Weil theorem that is somewhat different from the proofs appearing in the literature and with somewhat weaker hypotheses, of purely topological type. We also provide a discussion of the assumptions, and an application to solutions of generalized Fermat equations, where our statement allows to simplify the original argument of Darmon and Granville.
