## A shortcut in Kapovich’s proof of Haupt’s theorem

The Teichmüller space of genus curves carries the Hodge bundle , the total space of which maps into the first cohomology space via the period map (i. e., a holomorphic 1-form maps into its cohomology class). Haupt’s (or Haupt–Kapovich) theorem describes the image in terms of the integral structure on and …
