# The Birman exact sequence for 3‐manifolds

@article{Banks2014TheBE, title={The Birman exact sequence for 3‐manifolds}, author={Jessica E. Banks}, journal={Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society}, year={2014}, volume={49} }

We study the Birman exact sequence for compact 3‐manifolds, obtaining a complete picture of the relationship between the mapping class group of the manifold and the mapping class group of the submanifold obtained by deleting an interior point. This covers both orientable manifolds and non‐orientable ones.

Using ideas from 3-manifolds, Hatcher–Wahl defined a notion of automorphism groups of free groups with boundary. We study their Torelli subgroups, adapting ideas introduced by Putman for surface…

Given a manifold M and a point in its interior, the point-pushing map describes a diffeomorphism that pushes the point along a closed path. This defines a homomorphism from the fundamental group of M…
