Stability and Compactification of the Moduli of Abelian Varieties

Colloquium presented by Iku Nakamura (Hokkaido University)

In arbitrary dimension, we canonically compactify the moduli space of abelian varieties by GIT-stability of Mumford. In the smallest possible case, dimension one and $N=3$, the problem is reduced to the study of planar cubic curves, more specifically Hesse cubic curves. Every GIT-stable cubic curve is isomorphic to a Hesse cubic curve.
