Finite simple groups acting with fixity 3 and their occurrence as groups of automorphisms of Riemann surfaces
Abstract The results in this article are based on the classification of finite simple groups that act with fixity 3. Motivated by the theory of Riemann surfaces, we investigate which ones of these
A note on minimal finite quotients of mapping class groups
We prove that the minimal nontrivial finite quotient group of the mapping class group M_g of a closed orientable surface of genus g is the symplectic group PSp(2g,Z_2), for g = 3 and 4 (this might
A lower bound for the number of group actions on a compact Riemann surface
We prove that the number of distinct group actions on compact Riemann surfaces of a fixed genus g (at least 2) is at least quadratic in g. We do this through the introduction of a coarse signature
On Cyclic Groups of Automorphisms of Riemann Surfaces
The question of extendability of the action of a cyclic group of automorphisms of a compact Riemann surface is considered. Particular attention is paid to those cases corresponding to Singerman's
The genus level of a group
We introduce the notion of the genus level of a group as a tool to help classify finite conformal group actions on compact Riemann surfaces. We classify all groups of genus level 1 and use our
Finite abelian subgroups of the mapping class group
The problem of enumeration of conjugacy classes of finite abelian sub- groups of the mapping class group Mof a compact closed surface X of genusis considered. A complete method of enumeration is
