Title: The moduli space of stable quotients
Speaker: Alina Marian
Speaker Info: UIC
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will discuss a space of stable coherent sheaf quotients of the rank n trivial vector bundle on Riemann surfaces. It gives a compactification of the space of holomorphic maps from Riemann surfaces to Grassmann varieties. The construction connects with Gromov-Witten theory on the one hand, and leads to relations in the cohomology ring of the moduli space of curves on the other. This is based on joint work with Dragos Oprea and Rahul Pandharipande.
