|TITLE||Top weight cohomology of moduli of curves|
Moduli of curves has been a very interesting object in algebraic geometry, but very few topological properties are known so far. For example, cohomology groups of moduli of curves are unknown for general g. I will introduce [chan-galatius-payne]’s approach they used to find nonzero top weight cohomology classes.
