Cohomology of configuration spaces of surfaces

We compute the rational cohomology of unordered configuration spaces of points on any closed orientable surface. We find a series with coefficients in the Grothendieck ring of the symplectic group

Extra structure on the cohomology of configuration spaces of closed orientable surfaces

We construct a spectral sequence converging to the Morava $E$-theory of unordered configuration spaces and identify its E$^2$-page as the homology of a Chevalley-Eilenberg-like complex for Hecke Lie

On the Homology of Configuration Spaces

The homology with coefficients in a field of the configuration spaces C(M × Rn, Mo × R n; X) is determined in this paper.

Betti numbers of configuration spaces of surfaces

We give explicit formulas for the Betti numbers, both stable and unstable, of the unordered configuration spaces of an arbitrary surface of finite type.

The cohomology ring is obtained for the space of ordered sets of n different points of a plane.


— We compute the rational homology of all spaces of finite configurations on spheres. Our tool is a bar spectral sequence which can be viewed as coming from the notion of “topological chiral

Configuration spaces on the sphere and higher loop spaces

Abstract.We show that the homology over a field of the space ΛnΣnX of free maps from the n-sphere to the n-fold suspension of X depends only on the cohomology algebra of X and compute it explicitly.

On the Cohomology of Configuration Spaces on Surfaces

The integral cohomology rings of the configuration spaces of n‐tuples of distinct points on arbitrary surfaces (not necessarily orientable, not necessarily compact and possibly with boundary) are

The singular chain complex of the iterated loop space is expressed in terms of the cobar construction. After that we consider the spectral sequence of the cobar construction and calculate its first

In this note we study the homology of configuration spaces of closed manifolds. We sharpen the eventual periodicity results of Nagpal and Cantero-Palmer, prove integral homological stability for

There are some interesting connections between the theory of algebraic functions and Artin’s theory of braids. For instance, the space G n of polynomials of degree n not having multiple roots is the
