Analysis and geometry of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces


Lizhen Ji

University of Michigan



Moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces are fundamental objects of
mathematics and have been intensively and extensively studied since
Riemann. A lot of work has been done on the algebraic geometry and
algebraic topology aspects of the moduli spaces. In this talk, I will
describe some problems and results on spectral analysis,  Riemannian geometry
and geometric topology of the moduli spaces.
