  • degenerations

  • K3 surfaces

  • compact moduli spaces

Primary Mathematics Subject Classification
Secondary Mathematics Subject Classification



I will discuss Kulikov and stable degenerations of K3 surfaces and and describe explicit, geometric compactifications of their moduli spaces in several interesting cases. Based on joint work with Philip Engel and Alan Thompson.
