Stable Quotients in Low Genus

Yaim Cooper (Harvard)

Stable quotient spaces provide an alternative to stable maps for compactifying spaces of maps. In this talk I will discuss spaces of stable quotients which compactify the space of degree d maps of genus g curves to P^n. I will describe what is known about the geometry of these spaces. I will also discuss the relationship between these spaces and the corresponding spaces of stable maps from the perspective of mirror symmetry and the perspective of the minimal model program.
