# Kevin Kordek : Geography of Mapping Class Groups and Moduli Spaces

Mapping class groups are topological objects which can be used to describe the continuous symmetries of a surface. On the other hand, every compact orientable surface has a moduli space, a complex variety whose points parametrize all of its inequivalent complex structures. These concepts turn out to be closely related. In this talk, we'll cover the basics of both mapping class groups and moduli of Riemann surfaces, as well as explore their relationship.
