A soft dive into moduli spaces: All triangles form a triangle.
We mathematicians like to measure, understand and group things according to them sharing similar properties. Understanding structure is a big part of understanding maths.
Hence an immediate reason for the birth of what is called a moduli space. Very roughly speaking, a moduli space is a geometric space where points correspond to different groups of something, usually algebro-geometric objects or classes of such.
As I just explained mathematicians love to group things with similar properties. Let me…
