Growth of the Weil-Petersson Diameter of Moduli Space

In this paper we study the Weil-Petersson geometry of $\overline{\mathcal{M}_{g,n}}$, the compactified moduli space of Riemann surfaces with genus g and n marked points. The main goal of this paper

In this paper we study the systole function along Weil-Petersson geodesics. We show that the square root of the systole function is uniformly Lipschitz on Teichm\"uller space endowed with the

Families of Riemann Surfaces and Weil-Petersson Geometry

This book is the companion to the CBMS lectures of Scott Wolpert at Central Connecticut State University. The lectures span across areas of research progress on deformations of hyperbolic surfaces

Enumerative geometry via the moduli space of super Riemann surfaces

In this paper we relate volumes of moduli spaces of super Riemann surfaces to integrals over the moduli space of stable Riemann surfaces $\overline{\cal M}_{g,n}$. This allows us to use a recursion

Topological recursion for Masur–Veech volumes

We study the Masur--Veech volumes $MV_{g,n}$ of the principal stratum of the moduli space of quadratic differentials of unit area on curves of genus $g$ with $n$ punctures. We show that the volumes

On the Weil-Petersson curvature of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces of large genus

Let $S_g$ be a closed surface of genus $g$ and $\mathbb{M}_g$ be the moduli space of $S_g$ endowed with the Weil-Petersson metric. In this paper we investigate the Weil-Petersson curvatures of

Local topological recursion governs the enumeration of lattice points in $\overline{\mathcal M}_{g,n}$

The second author and Norbury initiated the enumeration of lattice points in the Deligne-Mumford compactifications of moduli spaces of curves. They showed that the enumeration may be expressed in

Canonical metric on moduli spaces of log Calabi-Yau varieties

In this paper, we give a short proof of closed formula [9],[18] of logarithmic Weil-Petersson metric on moduli space of log Calabi-Yau varieties (if exists!) of conic and Poincare singularities and

Large genus asymptotics for intersection numbers and principal strata volumes of quadratic differentials

In this paper we analyze the large genus asymptotics for intersection numbers between ψ\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym} \usepackage{amsfonts}



Areas of two-dimensional moduli spaces

Wolpert’s formula expresses the Weil-Petersson 2-form in terms of the Fenchel-Nielsen coordinates in case of a closed or punctured surface. The area-form in Fenchel-Nielsen coordinates is invariant

Geometry and Spectra of Compact Riemann Surfaces

This book discusses hyperbolic structures, closed Geodesics and Huber's Theorem, and perturbations of the Laplacian in Hilbert Space.

Higher Weil-Petersson volumes of moduli spaces of stablen-pointed curves

Moduli spaces of compact stablen-pointed curves carry a hierarchy of cohomology classes of top dimension which generalize the Weil-Petersson volume forms and constitute a version of Mumford classes.

Gromov-Witten theory, Hurwitz numbers, and Matrix models, I

The main goal of the paper is to present a new approach via Hurwitz numbers to Kontsevich's combinatorial/matrix model for the intersection theory of the moduli space of curves. A secondary goal is

Ergodic theory on moduli spaces

Let M be a compact surface with x(M) < 0 and let G be a compact Lie group whose Levi factor is a product of groups locally isomorphic to SU(2) (for example SU(2) itself). Then the mapping class group

Galois Covers of Moduli of Curves

Moduli spaces of pointed curves with some level structure are studied. We prove that for so-called geometric level structures, the levels encountered in the boundary are smooth if the ambient variety

Smooth deligne-mumford compactifications by means of prym level structures

We show that the Deligne Mumford compacti cation of the moduli space of smooth complex curves of genus g admits a smooth Galois covering whose general point classi es curves with a level structure on
