Modular curves and moduli problems


`Modular curves are the parameter space of elliptic curves with certain
torsion structure.' In this talk, I will explain what that sentence
means, and how it is related to the usual definition of modular curves
in terms of quotients of the complex upper half plane with certain
matrix groups.
