Abstract: the (Riemann-)Schottky problem is that of describing the moduli space M_g of genus g curves inside the moduli space A_g of g-dimensional abelian varieties. One classical approach is to seek modular forms on A_g that vanish on M_g. We shall explain why there is no such form that survives for every genus.

This is joint work with Giulio Codogni (DPMMS).”
