Bödigheimer, Carl-Friedrich (ed.) et al., Mapping class groups and moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces.

Understanding that the moduli space of smooth non-hyperelliptic genus three curves coincides with that of smooth quartic curves in \(\mathbb{P}^ 2\) and with that of Del Pezzo surfaces of degree 2, the author introduces a stratification into the moduli spaces \(M_ 3\) and \(M^ 1_ 3\) of smooth (pointed) genus three curves according to the configurations of seven points on \(\mathbb{P}^ 2\). From this point of view, he describes the moduli space in terms of a Weyl group and decides the Poincaré polynomials of these strata.
