Real normalized differentials and Arbarello’s conjecture
Using meromorphic differentials with real periods, we prove Arbarello’s conjecture that any compact complex cycle of dimension g - n in the moduli space M g of smooth algebraic curves of genus g must intersect the locus of curves having a Weierstrass point of order at most n.
