In this paper we study the ample cone of the moduli space $\mgn$ of stable $n$-pointed curves of genus $g$. Our motivating conjecture is that a divisor on $\mgn$ is ample iff it has positive intersection with all 1-dimensional strata (the components of the locus of curves with at least $3g+n-2$ nodes). This translates into a simple conjectural description of the cone by linear inequalities, and, as all the 1-strata are rational, includes the conjecture that the Mori cone is polyhedral and… Expand
