A Modular Operad of Embedded Curves


Speaker: Charles Siegel, The University of Tokyo
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Tue, Oct 21 2014, 3:10PM

Modular operads were introduced by Getzler and Kapranov to formalize the structure of gluing maps between moduli of stable marked curves. We present a construction of analogous gluing maps between moduli of pluri-log-canonically embedded marked curves, which fit together to give a modular operad of embedded curves. This is joint work with Satoshi Kondo and Jesse Wolfson.
