Colloquium - Melody Chan - Moduli of curves and abelian varieties: classical and tropical
Title: Moduli of curves and abelian varieties: classical and tropical
Abstract: I'll report on recent work using tropical techniques to find new rational cohomology classes in moduli spaces Ag of abelian varieties, building on previous joint work with Soren Galatius and Sam Payne on Mg. I will spend most of the talk giving you a broad introduction to moduli spaces and their tropicalizations. Joint work with Madeline Brandt, Juliette Bruce, Margarida Melo, Gwyneth Moreland, and Corey Wolfe.
