We continue our study of the monoid of right-veering diffeo morphisms on a compact oriented surface with nonempty boundary, introduced in [HK M2]. We conduct a detailed study of the case when the surface is a punctured torus; in particular , we exhibit the difference between the monoid of right-veering diffeomorphisms and the monoid of p roducts of positive Dehn twists, with the help of theRademacher function . We then generalize to the braid group Bn on n strands by relating thesignatureand… CONTINUE READING
