The intersection theory in the tautological ring of moduli spaces of curves has many applications in algebraic geometry and Mathematical physics. The course will cover Witten-Kontsevich theorem on intersection theory and integrable systems, the recent progress of Faber's conjecture on the structure of tautological rings
