Abstract : In this paper, we consider the parameter space of the rational plane curves with uni-branched singularity. We show that such a parameter space is decomposable into irreducible components which are rational varieties. Rational parametrizations of the irreducible components are given in a constructive way, by a repeated use of Abhyankar-Moh Epimorphism Theorem. We compute an enumerative invariant of this parameter space, and include explicit computational examples to recover some classically-known invariants.
