Basic geometric questions such as “How many metrics of constant Gauss curvature does a smooth surface carry, and how does the set of all these look like?” gave rise to the concept of moduli space. In this talk, I will focus on this and a number of several related questions from the geometry of surfaces, spanning the range from some classical results to current research problems.

Note: This seminar is aimed at a general audience of mathematicians
