Introduction to moduli of curves

The goal of this talk is to explain the definition of a moduli functor. We will explore several examples which are closely related to the moduli space of curves.

Projectivity of Hilbert schemes and their tangent space

We will give a sketch of the proof of projectivity of Hilbert schemes and describe their tangent space.

Hilbert schemes - pathologies and dimension counts

We will explore an example of a Hilbert scheme with a component that is everywhere nonreduced and describe some dimension counts.

A moduli space that is not fine

We will revisit the moduli space of elliptic curves and introduce two spaces: the moduli space of smooth curves of genus g with n marked points and the degree d relative Picard group over the total space of M_g.
