Singularities of moduli of curves with a universal root

  journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry},
In a series of recent papers, Chiodo, Farkas and Ludwig carry out a deep analysis of the singular locus of the moduli space of stable (twisted) curves with an $\ell$-torsion line bundle. They show that for $\ell\leq 6$ and $\ell\neq 5$ pluricanonical forms extend over any desingularization. This allows to compute the Kodaira dimension without desingularizing, as done by Farkas and Ludwig for $\ell=2$, and by Chiodo, Eisenbud, Farkas and Schreyer for $\ell=3$. Here we treat roots of line bundles…

Moduli of $G$-covers of curves: geometry and singularities

In a recent paper Chiodo and Farkas described the singular locus and the locus of non-canonical singularities of the moduli space of level curves. In this work we generalize their results to the

Singularities of the moduli space of level curves

We describe the singular locus of the compactification of the moduli space $R_{g,l}$ of curves of genus $g$ paired with an $l$-torsion point in their Jacobian. Generalising previous work for $l\le

Syzygies of torsion bundles and the geometry of the level l modular variety over Mg

We formulate, and in some cases prove, three statements concerning the purity or, more generally the naturality of the resolution of various rings one can attach to a generic curve of genus g and a

Moduli of twisted spin curves

In this note we give a new, natural construction of a compactification of the stack of smooth r-spin curves, which we call the stack of stable twisted r-spin curves. This stack is identified with a

The geometry of the moduli space of odd spin curves

The spin moduli spaceSg is the parameter space of theta characteristics (spin structures) on stable curves of genus g. It has two connected components, S g andS + g , depending on the parity of the

The geometry of the moduli space of curves of genus 23

The problem of describing the birational geometry of the moduli space Mg of complex curves of genus g has a long history. Severi already knew in 1915 thatMg is unirational for g ≤ 10 (cf. [Sev]; see

On the geometry of the moduli space of spin curves

We determine the smooth locus and the locus of canonical singularities in the Cornalba compactification \bar S_g of the moduli space S_g of spin curves, i.e., smooth curves of genus g with a theta

Poincaré bundles for families of curves.

If X is a projective nonsingular algebraic curve and J the variety of isomorphism classes of line bundles on X of degree r, then it is a classical fact that there exists a line b ndle on J χ X which

The Kodaira dimension of the moduli space of Prym varieties

Prym varieties provide a correspondence between the moduli spaces of curves and abelian varieties Mg and Ag−1, via the Prym map Pg : Rg → Ag−1 from the moduli space Rg parameterizing pairs [C, η],

Twisted Bundles and Admissible Covers

Abstract We study the structure of the stacks of twisted stable maps to the classifying stack of a finite group G—which we call the stack of twisted G-covers, or twisted G-bundles. For a suitable

Compactifying the space of stable maps

We define two equivalent notions of twisted stable map from a curve to a Deligne-Mumford stack with projective moduli space, and we prove that twisted stable maps of fixed degree form a complete
