Combinatorics and degenerations in algebraic geometry

Melody Chan (Harvard)

Abstract: I will give two examples from my own research showing how one may prove theorems about algebraic curves and their moduli using degenerations and combinatorics, and conversely, how surprising combinatorial theorems can arise from the study of algebraic curves. Joint work, in part, with Lopez, Pflueger, and Teixidor; and with Galatius and Payne.
