The "Mumford conjecture" package, and applications
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ivan Smith.
I will describe how recent work inspired by Madsen and Weiss’ proof of Mumford’s conjecture (on the stable cohomology of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces) gives a conceptual and computational understanding of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces with extra structure.
In particular, I will focus on two interesting examples: the moduli spaces of r-Spin Riemann surfaces, and the universal Picard variety over the moduli space of curves, and explain how these methods can be used to compute their integral Picard groups.
