If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Craven. I will talk about the relation between the mapping class groups of surfaces and the automorphism groups and the superinjective simplicial maps of the complexes of curves on surfaces for both orientable and nonorientable surfaces. I will also talk about the proof that each superinjective simplicial map of the complex of curves of a compact, connected, nonorientable surface is induced by a homeomorphism of the surface if This talk is part of the Algebra Seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:Note that ex-directory lists are not shown. |
