What is ... the moduli spaces of curves?

This page hosts information on Giulia Battiston's talk "What is ... the moduli spaces of curves?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, June 20, 1:00pm at the BMS Loft at Urania. This talk will help you better understand the talk by Rahul Pandharipande, which will start at 2pm.

Abstract

Moduli spaces are constructed in order to parametrize specific classes of objects. We will explicitly construct moduli spaces for simple parametrization problems, and then introduce the moduli space of curves of genus g and discuss some of their basic geometric properties.
