Abstract: 
The Schottky problem is to find ways of distinguishing Jacobians from arbitrary principally polarized abelian varieties. From a classical viewpoint (that of this talk) the aim is to find Siegel modular forms that vanish along the Jacobian locus. In this talk we discuss what happens in the stable situation, that is, when the genus increases arbitrarily.
