Abstract: A general polarized hyperelliptic K3 surfaces of degree 4 is a double cover of $\mathbf{P }^ 1 \times \mathbf{P}^1$ branched along a bidegree $(4,4)$ curve. Classically there are two compactifications of their moduli spaces: one is the GIT quotient of $(4,4)$ curves, the other is the Baily-Borel compactification of their periods. We show that K-stability provides a natural modular interpolation between these two compactifications. This provides a new aspect toward a recent result of Laza-O'Grady. Based on joint work in progress with K. Ascher and K. DeVleming.
