### What is $M_g$ over a finite field, really?

Let $M_{g} \to \mathbb{Z}$ be the coarse moduli scheme of non-singular genus g curves over $\mathbb{Z}$. That is, suppose that $M_{g}$ co-represents the functor $M^{\sharp}_{g} : \text{Sch} \to \text{...

### Groupoid cardinality of DM stack and point counting on coarse moduli spaces

Let $X$ be a finite type DM stack over a finite field $k$ with a coarse moduli space $X_c$. (We only assume $X_c$ is an algebraic space and $X$ might have infinite inertia stack.)
Under which ...

### Good quotients and coarse moduli spaces

I started study the moduli space theory, by Newstead's book ''Lectures on moduli problems and orbit spaces". Theorem 3.21 says that given a variety $X$ and a line bundle $L$ over $X$, then for any L-...

### Is the moduli space of genus three smooth quartics affine?

Non-hyperelliptic curves of genus three are smooth quartics. Is the moduli space of such curves affine?
I think this follows from a more general result on smooth complete intersections, but I'm ...

### global units on moduli spaces of abelian varieties

This is a question from a colleague.
Let $A_{g,d,n}$ be the coarse moduli space over $\mathbb Z$ (of the moduli stack, or assume $n\ge3$ if you like) of abelian schemes of relative dimension $g,$ ...

### Family over the coarse moduli space of curves

Let $k$ be an algebraically closed field. As the coarse moduli space of curves $M_g$ of genus $g$ over $k$ is not a fine moduli space, it does not have a universal family. But I am wondering if it has ...

### Interesting stacks with affine space as coarse moduli

I am looking for examples of Deligne-Mumford stacks whose coarse moduli space is $\mathbb{A}^n$ or at least an open subscheme of $\mathbb{A}^n$ whose complement has codimension $2$. (Thus the whole ...

### Stack of vector bundles (on a curve) over a strictly semi-stable point of the moduli space

Consider the stack $Bun_{r,d}^{ss}$ of rank $r$ semi-stable vector bundle of degree $d$ over a fixed curve. There exists also a coarse moduli space $M$ built via GIT. Over the stable locus of $M$ it ...

### Are two “nice” transformation groupoids with the same coarse moduli and isomorphic inertia isomorphic?

Hi!
I am stuck with the following question: suppose we have a semisimple connected algebraic group acting on a quasi-affine variety X by closed orbits, and suppose that inertia is flat.
Suppose we ...

### Reference request: Families of curves and associated mapping classes

In Teichmüller theory, we consider families of genus $g$ smooth complex projective curves with $n$ distinguished points.
Assume $2g-2+n>0$ and, for convenience, $(g,n)\neq(1,1),(2,0)$.
Denote ${T}...
