On the arc and curve complex of a surface

We study the arc and curve complex AC(S) of an oriented connected surface S of finite type with punctures. We show that if the surface is not a sphere with one, two or three punctures nor a torus with one puncture, then the simplicial automorphism group of AC(S) coincides with the natural image of the extended mapping class group of S in that group. We also show that for any vertex of AC(S), the combinatorial structure of the link of that vertex characterizes the type of a curve or of an arc in S that represents that vertex. We also give a proof of the fact if S is not a sphere with at most three punctures, then the natural embedding of the curve complex of S in AC (S) is a quasi-isometry. The last result, at least under some slightly more restrictive conditions on S. was already known. As a corollary, AC (S) is Gromov-hyperbolic.


On entire rational maps of real surfaces
Ozan, Yıldıray (The Korean Mathematical Society, 2002-01-01)
In this paper, we define for a component X-0 of a nonsingular compact real algebraic surface X the complex genus of X-0, denoted by g(C)(X-0), and use this to prove the nonexistence of nonzero degree entire rational maps f : X-0 --> Y provided that g(C)(Y) > g(C)(X-0), analogously to the topological category. We construct connected real surfaces of arbitrary topological genus with zero complex genus.
On symplectic quotients of K3 surfaces
Cinkir, Z; Onsiper, H (Elsevier BV, 2000-12-18)
In this note, we construct generalized Shioda-Inose structures on K3 surfaces using cyclic covers and almost functoriality of Shioda-Inose structures with respect to normal subgroups of a given group of symplectic automorphisms.
On the Krall-type polynomials on q-quadratic lattices
Alvarez-Nodarse, R.; Adiguzel, R. Sevinik (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
In this paper, we study the Krall-type polynomials on non-uniform lattices. For these polynomials the second order linear difference equation, q-basic series representation and three-term recurrence relations are obtained. In particular, the q-Racah-Krall polynomials obtained via the addition of two mass points to the weight function of the non-standard q-Racah polynomials at the ends of the interval of orthogonality are considered in detail. Some important limit cases are also discussed. (C) 2011 Royal Net...
On the moduli of surfaces admitting genus 2 fibrations
Onsiper, H; Tekinel, C (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2002-12-01)
We investigate the structure of the components of the moduli space Of Surfaces of general type, which parametrize surfaces admitting nonsmooth genus 2 fibrations of nonalbanese type, over curves of genus g(b) greater than or equal to 2.
Dosi, Anar (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2011-04-01)
In this note we investigate quantizations of the weak topology associated with a pair of dual linear spaces. We prove that the weak topology admits only one quantization called the weak quantum topology, and that weakly matrix bounded sets are precisely the min-bounded sets with respect to any polynormed topology compatible with the given duality. The technique of this paper allows us to obtain an operator space proof of the noncommutative bipolar theorem.
