Title: Square-tilings of modular curves X(d) and Teichmuller curves in genus 2
Abstract: In my talk I will define certain conformal flat metrics on modular curves X(d) presenting them as a bunch of unit squares identified along parallel edges. In particular, we will see "pagoda" structures of X(d) that arise in the case of prime d. I will discuss this structures in more details and relate them to the classification of TeichmÃ¼ller curves in M_2.
