We study the homology of $[P_n,P_n]$, the commutator subgroup of the pure braid group on $n$ strands, and show that $H_l([P_n,P_n])$ contains a free abelian group of infinite rank for all $1\leq l\leq n-2$. As a consequence we determine the cohomological dimension of $[P_n,P_n]$: for $n\geq 2$ we have $\mathrm{cd}([P_n,P_n])=n-2$. 
An upper bound on the topological complexity of discriminantal varieties.
We give an upper bound on the topological complexity of varieties $\mathcal{V}$ obtained as complements in $\mathbb{C}^m$ of the zero locus of a polynomial. As an application, we determine theExpand


Cohomology of Pure Braid Groups of exceptional cases
Abstract Consider the ring R : = Q [ τ , τ − 1 ] of Laurent polynomials in the variable τ . The Artin's Pure Braid Groups (or Generalized Pure Braid Groups) act over R , where the action of everyExpand
The homology of the Milnor fiber for classical braid groups
Let (W, S) be a Coxeter system, with W a finite, irreducible Coxeter group and let GW be the associated Artin group (see Bourbaki [5] for an introduction to Coxeter groups and their classificationsExpand
Cohomology of affine Artin groups and applications
The result of this paper is the determination of the cohomology of Artin groups of type An, B n and A n with non-trivial local coefficients. The main result is an explicit computation of theExpand
Arithmetic properties of the cohomology of Artin groups
In this paper we compute the cohomology of all Artin groups associated to finite Coxeter groups, with coefficients in the following module Rq : let R := Q[q, ] be the ring of rational LaurentExpand
The Orlik–Solomon complex and Milnor fibre homology
Abstract Fix a real hyperplane arrangement, and let F be the Milnor fibre of its complexified defining polynomial. We consider a filtration of the homology of F that arises from the algebraicExpand
Cohomology of braid groups with nontrivial coefficients
In the paper, the homology of the braid groups with twisted coefficients and the homology of commutator subgroups of the braid groups are calculated. The main tool is the multiplicative structure onExpand
Topological complexity of unordered configuration spaces of surfaces
We determine the topological complexity of unordered configuration spaces on almost all punctured surfaces (both orientable and non-orientable). We also give improved bounds for the topologicalExpand

In this paper we will present a very simple discrete Morse theory for CW complexes. In addition to proving analogues of the main theorems of Morse theory, we also present discrete analogues of suchExpand
