The moduli space A_g of abelian varieties has three classical toroidal compactifications: (1) perfect, (2) 2nd Voronoi, and (3) Igusa blowup, each with its own distinct geometric meaning. It is an interesting problem to understand exactly how these compactifications are related.

I will show that (1) and (2) are isomorphic in a neighborhood of the image of a regular map from Deligne-Mumford’s moduli space M_g bar, and that the rational map from M_g bar to A_g bar for (3) is not regular. This is a joint work with Adrian Brunyate.
