Cohomology of the moduli space of curves

The moduli space of curves is an object which has been studied since Riemann. After reviewing basic aspects of the geometry of moduli space, I will discuss recent progress in understanding of its cohomology.

The Mathematics Colloquium is a series of monthly talks organized by the Department of Mathematics of IST, aiming to be a forum for the presentation of mathematical ideas or ideas about Mathematics. The Colloquium welcomes the participation of faculty, researchers and undergraduate or graduate students, of IST or other institutions, and is seen as an opportunity of bringing together and fostering the building up of ideas in an informal atmosphere.

Organizers: Conceição Amado, Lina Oliveira e Maria João Borges.
