Colloquium - Melody Chan - Moduli of curves and abelian varieties: classical and tropical

Description

Speaker: Melody Chan (Brown University)

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.
