Abstract: I will discuss some known geometric constructions of self-maps of finite degree > 1 of the moduli space of algebraic curves of genus g. An example of such a map in the case g = 1 is the Hessian map of degree 3 which assigns to the isomorphism class of plane cubic curve F = 0 the isomorphism class of the plane cubic curve defined by the Hessian determinant of F. |
