SUMMARY:Math Seminar Series
DESCRIPTION:
Algebra\n
\n
Ignacio Barros, Université Paris-Saclay,
will be speaking.\n
\n
The presentation is
titled "Pencils on surfaces with normal crossings
and the Kodaira dimension of Mg,n"\n
\n
Contact Laure Flapan (flapanla@msu.edu) for more
information.\n
\n
The first half of the talk
will be a colloquium style talk, where I will
recall the history of the problem of determining
the Kodaira dimension of the moduli space
of curves. In the second half I will report
on joint work with D. Agostini, where we study
smoothing of pencils of curves on surfaces
with normal crossings. As a consequence we
obtain new instances of (g,n) where Mg,n is
of negative Kodaira dimension and provide bounds
for the Kodaira dimension of M16 and M12,8.\n\n
