We describe the topological behavior of the conjugacy action of the mapping class group of an orientable infinite‐type surface Σ$\Sigma$ on itself by proving that: (1)all conjugacy classes of Map(Σ)$\operatorname{Map}(\Sigma )$ are meager for every Σ$\Sigma$ , (2) Map(Σ)$\operatorname{Map}(\Sigma )$ has a somewhere dense conjugacy class if and only if Σ$\Sigma$ has at most two maximal ends and no non‐displaceable finite‐type subsurfaces, (3) Map(Σ)$\operatorname{Map}(\Sigma )$ has a dense…

Let $S$ be an orientable, connected surface with infinitely-generated fundamental group. The main theorem states that if the genus of $S$ is finite and at least 4, then the isomorphism type of the…

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…

Let $\phi:\mathcal{C}(S)\to\mathcal{C}(S')$ be a simplicial isomorphism between the curve graphs of two infinite-type surfaces. In this paper we show that in this situation $S$ and $S'$ are…

It is a classical result of Powell that pure mapping class groups of connected, orientable surfaces of finite type and genus at least three are perfect. In stark contrast, we construct nontrivial…
