EMRE CAN SERTÖZ
Abstract: By considering Riemann surfaces from several different angles, we will see that there are many seemingly different ways to vary the complex structure on a surface, getting different Riemann surfaces. So we can ask "What is the most natural way to vary Riemann Surfaces?". This is what the moduli space construction answers, and we will talk about it. Also we will see why we need some extra structure on the moduli space besides the classical structures that come via a manifold (or a scheme).
