Abstract: In this talk I will introduce few linear differential equations with finite monodromy.
This includes Picard-Fuchs equations of a family of degree $4$ and $6$ curves and a family of
K3 surfaces. A cheap method to verify this conjecturally is to compute $p$-curvature and observe that it
is zero for all except a finite number of
bad primes. The inverse of this statement is known as Katz-Grothendieck conjecture.
I will also compute the bad primes of these differential equations.
