Interpolation for Brill--Noether Curves


The interpolation problem is one of the oldest problems in mathematics. In its most broad form it asks: When can a curve of a given type be passed through a given number of general points? In this talk I will discuss the history of this problem, as well as recent joint work with Vogt that completely solves this problem for curves of general moduli (``Brill--Noether curves'').
