# Anabelian Geometry on moduli spaces

speaker: Felipe Voloch (University of Texas at Austin)

abstract: We will discuss the section conjecture of anabelian geometry and the sufficiency of the finite descent obstruction to the Hasse principle for the moduli spaces of principally polarized abelian varieties and of curves over number fields. For the former we show that both the section conjecture and the finite descent obstruction fail in a very controlled way. For the latter, we prove some partial results that suggest that the finite descent obstruction suffices. We also show how this sufficiency implies the same for all hyperbolic curves.
