Geometry & Topology Seminar
A new cohomology class in the moduli space of stable curves
Paul Norbury (Melbourne)
Thursday 11 May 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 535A.
Please join us for lunch after the talk!
We will define a cohomology class in the moduli space of stable curves with many beautiful properties analogous to properties of intersection numbers on the moduli space proven in the Witten-Kontsevich theorem. Applications of this new cohomology class to various enumerative problems will be given.
