Title: Moduli of abelian varieties: symmetry and rigidity
Abstract: For each positive integer g, the moduli space of g-dimensional abelian varieties is an algebraic variety, with a large set of symmetry and also many special points. We will follow two threads, symmetry and special points, and discuss some rigidity phenomena of these moduli spaces, both in characteristic 0 and positive characteristic p.
