We compute the generalized Lefschetz number of orientation-preserving selfhomeomorphisms of a compact punctured disk, using the fact that homotopy classes of these homeomorphisms can be identified with braids. This result is applied to study Nielsen-Thurston canonical homeomorphisms on a punctured disk. We determine, for a certain class of braids, the… (More)
