Frances Kirwan (University of Oxford)

Topic:

This talk will attempt to give a survey (for non-experts) of a few of
the many fascinating problems and results concerning moduli spaces in
algebraic geometry, and in particular some moduli spaces associated to
the simplest objects of algebraic geometry: algebraic curves. These
include moduli spaces of bundles over curves and moduli spaces of
'stable maps' from curves to a fixed target projective variety.
