The Verlinde bundles over the moduli space M_g of smooth curves have as fibers spaces of generalized theta functions i.e., spaces of global sections of determinant line bundles over moduli of parabolic bundles. I will discuss a formula for the Chern classes of the Verlinde bundles, as well as extensions over the compactification \overline M_g.

There will be a dinner.
