 The space of all Riemann surfaces (the socalled moduli space) plays an important role in algebraic geometry and its applications to quantum field theory. The present book is devoted to the study of topological properties of this space and of similar moduli spaces, such as the space of real algebraic curves, the space of mappings, and also superanalogs of all these spaces. The book can be used by researchers and graduate students working in algebraic geometry, topology, and mathematical physics. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry and its applications to mathematical physics.
