    Abstract:
    Let Mng be the moduli space of n-pointed Riemann surfaces of genus g. Denote by M̄ng the Deligne-Mumford compactification of Mng. In the present paper, we calculate the orbifold and the ordinary Euler characteristics of M̄ng for any g and n such that n > 2 - 2g. © 2011 European Mathematical Society.
