Title: Superelliptic curves and weighted moduli height.

Abstract: We study the moduli space of the irreducible superelliptic curves of genus 2 or greater and the corresponding weighted projective space. We introduce the concept of weighted greatest common divisor on such spaces which leads to the notion of weighted moduli height for superelliptic curves.  Further we suggest an algorithm to determine the equation of a superelliptic curve with minimal weighted moduli height.
