DESCRIPTION:Combinatorial Cones & the Moduli Space of Abelian Surfaces - \n
An overarching theme\, appearing in many different parts of math\, is that
if one wishes to study some type of geometric objects it is often useful to
package all of your geometric objects together into one space (often calle
d a moduli space). One such situation is studying a generalization of ellip
tic curves called abelian surfaces\, which should roughly be thought of as
4-dimensional donuts. Working together we will use a bit of combinatorics a
nd group theory to construct special cones\, from which we will learn about
the geometry and topology of the corresponding moduli of 4-dimensional don
uts (e.g. Abelian surfaces). This is joint work with Madeline Brandt (a Ree
d alumna)\, Melody Chan\, Margarida Melo\, Gwyneth Moreland\, and Corey Wol
