For low degree K3 surfaces there are several way of constructing and compactifying the moduli space (via period maps, via GIT, or via KSBA). In the case of degree 2 K3 surface, the relationship between various compactifications is well understood by work of Shah, Looijenga, and others. I will report on work in progress with K. O’Grady which aims to give similar complete description for degree 4 K3s.
