DESCRIPTION:The moduli space of curves has been around at leas
t since Riemann. It is a space that parametrises 1
-dimensional complex manifolds\, and mathematician
s have studied it using topology\, algebra\, geome
try\, combinatorics\, and we have even learned thi
ngs about it from physicists. Still\, in compariso
n to what we would like to know about it\, we stil
l know basically nothing. I will try to give you a
sense for why these spaces are worth obsessing ov
er\, and a taster for how different areas of mathe
matics have contributed to its study.
