Flat Surfaces and Algebraic Curves

Period16 Sep - 22 Sep 2018
This workshop brought together two distinct communities: “flat” geometers, studying the moduli of flat surfaces, and Teichmüller dynamics, and algebraic geometers studying the moduli space of curves. While both communities study similar or often the same objects, very different viewpoints and toolboxes lead to different questions being addressed, and different progress being made. The workshop sought to educate each community about the techniques of the other, and to foster communication between the two groups. One particular focus was enumerative geometry.
