Starting with a motivating example of the moduli space of flat tori, we will define the outer space of a free group F. This can be thought of as a universal cover of a moduli space of graphs. In fact, we can do even better and view the moduli space of graphs as a (kind of) classifying space for Out(F), the outer automorphism group of F. We will deduce cohomological properties of Out(F) and also study individual elements of Out(F) by looking at their dynamics on outer space.
