What is ... a Moduli Space?

This page hosts information on Nicola Tarasca's talk "What is ... a Moduli Space?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, November 20, 12:30pm at Arnimallee 6, SR031. This talk will help you better understand the BMS Friday talk by Klaus Hulek, which will start at 2pm in the lecture hall at ZIB.


Moduli Spaces are of vital importance in Algebraic Geometry. Given algebraic varieties with some fixed properties, one tries to understand the isomorphism classes and to put an algebraic structure on them. In this talk I will introduce Elliptic Curves, and I will show the classic example of Moduli Space of Elliptic Curves.
