Ünlü Eroğlu, Hatice
The Torelli group is the subgroup of the mapping class group that acts trivially on homology. Putman's subsurface Torelli groups are an important construction for working with the Torelli group, as they restore the functoriality essential for the inductive arguments on which mapping class group arguments are invariably based. The other important structure on the Torelli group is the Johnson homomorphism. The contraction of the image of the Johnson homomorphism is the Chillingworth class. In this thesis, a combinatorial description of the Chillingworth class is derived for the subsurface Torelli groups. This thesis also brings in the naturality and uniqueness properties on the map whose image is the dual of the Chillingworth classes of the subsurface Torelli groups. Moreover, a relation between the Chillingworth classes of the subsurface Torelli groups and the partitioned Johnson homomorphism is presented.

Centralizers of finite subgroups in Hall's universal group
Kegel, Otto H.; Kuzucuoğlu, Mahmut (2017-01-01)
The structure of the centralizers of elements and finite abelian subgroups in Hall's universal group is studied by B. Hartley by using the property of existential closed structure of Hall's universal group in the class of locally finite groups. The structure of the centralizers of arbitrary finite subgroups were an open question for a long time. Here by using basic group theory and the construction of P. Hall we give a complete description of the structure of centralizers of arbitrary finite subgroups in Ha...
The mapping class group is generated by two commutators
Baykur, R. Inanc; Korkmaz, Mustafa (2021-05-01)
We show that the mapping class group of any closed connected orientable surface of genus at least five is generated by only two commutators, and if the genus is three or four, by three commutators. (C) 2021 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
Limit monomial groups
Bostan, Sezen; Kuzucuoğlu, Mahmut; Department of Mathematics (2021-3-03)
In this thesis, monomial groups, which are obtained by using strictly diagonal embeddings of complete monomial groups over a group of finite degree, are studied. The direct limit of complete monomial groups of finite degree with strictly diagonal embeddings is called limit monomial group . Normal subgroup structure of limit monomial groups over abelian groups is studied. We classified all subgroups of rational numbers, containing integers, by using base subgroup of limit monomial groups. We also studied the...
The second homology groups of mapping class groups of orientable surfaces
Korkmaz, Mustafa (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2003-05-01)
Let $\Sigma_{g,r}^n$ be a connected orientable surface of genus $g$ with $r$ boundary components and $n$ punctures and let $\Gamma_{g,r}^n$ denote the mapping class group of $\Sigma_{g,r}^n$, namely the group of isotopy classes of orientation-preserving diffeomorphisms of $\Sigma_{g,r}^n$ which are the identity on the boundary and on the punctures. Here, we see the punctures on the surface as distinguished points. The isotopies are required to be the identity on the boundary and on the punctures. If $r$ and...
THE CLASS OF (2,2)-GROUPS WITH HOMOCYCLIC REGULATOR QUOTIENT OF EXPONENT p(3) HAS BOUNDED REPRESENTATION TYPE
Arnold, David M.; Mader, Adolf; Mutzbauer, Otto; Solak, Ebru (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2015-08-01)
The class of almost completely decomposable groups with a critical typeset of type (2,2) and a homocyclic regulator quotient of exponent p(3) is shown to be of bounded representation type. There are only 16 isomorphism at p types of indecomposables, all of rank 8 or lower.
