Pontrjagin-Thom maps and the Deligne-Mumford compactification
[ 講演概要 ]
An embedding f: M -> N produces, via a construction of Pontrjagin-Thom, a map from N to the Thom space of the normal bundle over M. If f is an arbitrary map then one instead gets a map from N to the infinite loop space of the Thom spectrum of the normal bundle of f. We extend this Pontrjagin-Thom construction of wrong-way maps to differentiable stacks and use it to produce interesting maps from the Deligne-Mumford compactification of the moduli space of curves to certain infinite loop spaces. We show that these maps are surjective on mod p homology in a range of degrees. We thus produce large new families of torsion cohomology classes on the Deligne-Mumford compactification.
