Rafe Mazzeo (Stanford) will present "Spectral geometry of the Riemann moduli space."  Abstract: I will discuss some new understanding of the fine asymptotic geometry of the Weil-Peterson metric on the Riemann moduli space, and the applications of this to the analysis of the Laplacian for this metric. While the problems are fundamentally analytic, the emphasis will be on the underlying geometric principles as well as on some wider problems concerning the spectral geometry of singular spaces.
