Mapping class groups and finite covers
I will give a survey of results concerning the actions of a mapping class on the homology of various finite covers to which it lifts. I will draw connections to 3-manifold theory, especially largeness, growth of torsion homology and Alexander polynomials.
3:00-4:00pm in WMAX 216.
