Title:  Etale morphisms and local algebraic fundamental groups

Abstract:   Suppose that X is a normal noetherian scheme. We consider local obstructions to the map on etale fundamental groups pi_1(X^{reg}) --> pi_1(X) being an isomorphism. Assuming X has a regular alteration, we prove that these obstructions are finite if and only if X has a finite Galois cover that is etale over the regular locus, where the corresponding map on fundamental groups is an isomorphism.
