### Moduli of curves in characteristic zero

Let $K$ be a field of characteristic zero, and let $\overline{K}$ be its algebraic closure. Let $\overline{M}_{g,n}(K)$ and $\overline{M}_{g,n}(\overline{K})$ be the coarse moduli spaces parametrizing ...

### On the coarse moduli space of a stack

Consider a stack $\mathcal{X}$ over $\mathbb{C}$ as a category fibred in groupoids over the category of schemes. Let $\mathcal{X}^s$ be the $\pi_0$ of this category, i.e. objects of $\mathcal{X}^s$ ...

### what exactly is the moduli functor for classifying elliptic curves with (full) level N structure?

So, when people say, "the moduli problem of classifying elliptic curves over $\mathbb{C}$ with level $N$ structure", there are usually two associated functors I've seen:
$P_N : ...

### What are some examples of coarse moduli spaces?

It took me some effort to work out Gerashenko's nice simple example Can a singular Deligne-Mumford stack have a smooth coarse space? of a DM stack non-equisingular with its coarse moduli space, which ...
