Top weight cohomology of A_g
HARVARD-MIT ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY
Gwyneth Moreland - Harvard University
I will discuss recent work on computing the top weight cohomology of A_g for g up to 7. We use combinatorial methods coming from the relationship between the top weight cohomology of A_g and the homology of the link of the moduli space of tropical abelian varieties to carry out the computation. This is joint work with Madeline Brandt, Juliette Bruce, Melody Chan, Margarida Melo, and Corey Wolfe.
