Compactification of strata of Abelian differentials

Matt Bainbridge , Dawei Chen , Quentin Gendron , Samuel Grushevsky , and Martin Möller Volume 167, Number 12 (2018)

We describe the closure of the strata of Abelian differentials with prescribed type of zeros and poles, in the projectivized Hodge bundle over the Deligne–Mumford moduli space of stable curves with marked points. We provide an explicit characterization of pointed stable differentials in the boundary of the closure, both a complex analytic proof and a flat geometric proof for smoothing the boundary differentials, and numerous examples. The main new ingredient in our description is a global residue condition arising from a full order on the dual graph of a stable curve.
