Course Content

Understanding the behavior of families of algebraic curves is of central interest in many branches of mathematics, including algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, low dimensional topology, as well as certain branches of theoretical physics such as string theory and various gauge theories. Moduli spaces of algebraic curves are among the standard tools for researchers working in these areas. The course aims to cover the essentials of the subject and bring the students to a position so that they can access the modern literature.
