A geometric description of the homology of surface bundles

  author={Caterina Campagnolo},
  journal={arXiv: Geometric Topology},
In the present note we describe geometrically the homology classes in the total space of a surface bundle over a surface in terms of the holonomy map. We treat the cases where the base surface is closed or has one boundary component. We replace the wrong theorem of the previous version by some observations on the homology of surface bundles and explain why our previous strategy failed.

Atoroidal Surface Bundles Over Surfaces
A surface-by-surface group is an extension of a non-trivial orientable closed surface group by another such group. It is an open question as to whether every such group contains a free abelianExpand

Abstract We prove that a δ-hyperbolic group for δ < ½ is a free product F * G 1 * … * Gn where F is a free group of finite rank and each Gi is a finite group.
Cohomology of Groups
This advanced textbook introduces students to cohomology theory. No knowledge of homological algebra is assumed beyond what is normally taught in a first course in algebraic topology.

This paper presents a meta-thesis on the basis of a model derived from the model developed in [Bouchut-Boyaval, M3AS (23) 2013] that states that the mode of action of the Higgs boson is determined by the modulus of the E-modulus. Expand
