Stable moduli spaces of manifolds

Abstract:

In this thesis we make several contributions to the theory of moduli spaces of smooth manifolds, especially in dimension two.

In Chapter 2 (joint with Soren Galatius) we give a new geometric proof of a generalisation of the Madsen-Weiss theorem, which does not rely on the tangential structure under investigation having homological stability. This allows us to compute the stable homology of moduli spaces of surfaces equipped with many different tangential structures.

In Chapte...
