A primer on mapping class groups

- Benson Farb, D. Margalit
- Mathematics
- 2013

Given a compact connected orientable surface S there are two fundamental objects attached: a group and a space. The group is the mapping class group of S, denoted by Mod(S). This group is defined by… Expand

Automorphisms of the pants complex

- Mathematics
- 15 February 2004

In loving memory of my mother, Batya 1. Introduction In the theory of mapping class groups, " curve complexes " assume a role similar to the one that buildings play in the theory of linear groups.… Expand

A Primer on Mapping Class Groups (Pms-49)

- Benson Farb, D. Margalit
- Mathematics
- 16 October 2011

The study of the mapping class group Mod(S) is a classical topic that is experiencing a renaissance. It lies at the juncture of geometry, topology, and group theory. This book explains as many… Expand

Commensurations of the Johnson kernel

- Tara E. Brendle, D. Margalit
- Mathematics
- 25 April 2004

Let K be the subgroup of the extended mapping class group, Mod(S), generated by Dehn twists about separating curves. Assuming that S is a closed, orientable surface of genus at least 4, we confirm a… Expand

Generators for the hyperelliptic Torelli group and the kernel of the Burau representation at $$t=-1$$t=-1

- Tara E. Brendle, D. Margalit, Andrew Putman
- Mathematics
- 16 November 2012

We prove that the hyperelliptic Torelli group is generated by Dehn twists about separating curves that are preserved by the hyperelliptic involution. This verifies a conjecture of Hain. The… Expand

Dimension of the Torelli group for Out(Fn)

- M. Bestvina, Kai-Uwe Bux, D. Margalit
- Mathematics
- 8 March 2006

Let $\mathcal{T}_{n}$ be the kernel of the natural map Out(Fn)→GLn(ℤ). We use combinatorial Morse theory to prove that $\mathcal{T}_{n}$ has an Eilenberg–MacLane space which is (2n-4)-dimensional and… Expand

Normal subgroups of mapping class groups and the metaconjecture of Ivanov

- Tara E. Brendle, D. Margalit
- MathematicsJournal of the American Mathematical Society
- 24 October 2017

We prove that if a normal subgroup of the extended mapping class group of a closed surface has an element of sufficiently small support, then its automorphism group and abstract commensurator group… Expand

Small dilatation pseudo-Anosovs and 3-manifolds

- Benson Farb, C. Leininger, D. Margalit
- Mathematics
- 2 May 2009

The main result of this paper is a universal finiteness theorem for the set of all small dilatation pseudo-Anosov homeomorphisms φ : S → S, ranging over all surfaces S. More precisely, we consider… Expand
