Let S denote a compact, connected, orientable surface with genus g and h boundary components. We refer to S as a surface of genus g with h holes. Let [Mscr ]S denote the mapping class group of S, the group of isotopy classes of orientation-preserving homeomorphisms S → S. Let G be a group. G is hopfian if every homomorphism from G onto itself is an automorphism. G is residually finite if for every g ∈ G with g ≠ 1 there exists a normal subgroup of finite index in G which does not contain g. Every finitely generated residually finite group is hopfian ([11, 12]). A group G is hyperhopfian ([2, 3]) if every homomorphism ψ G → G with ψ(G) normal in G and G/ψ(G) cyclic is an automorphism. As observed in [14], examples of hopfian groups which are not hyperhopfian are afforded by the fundamental groups of torus knots. By a result of Grossman [5], [Mscr ]S is residually finite. Since [Mscr ]S is also finitely generated, it is hopfian. It is a natural question to ask whether [Mscr ]S is hyperhopfian. In this paper, we shall answer a more general question. We say that a group G is ultrahopfian if every homomorphism ψ: G → G with ψ(G) normal in G and G/ψ(G) abelian is an automorphism. Note that an ultrahopfian group is hyperhopfian. We shall prove the following result.

Arbitrarily long factorizations in mapping class groups
Korkmaz, Mustafa (2015-05-12)
On a compact oriented surface of genus g with n ≥ 1 boundary components, δ1, δ2, ..., δn, we consider positive factorizations of the boundary multitwist tδ1 tδ2 ...tδn, where tδi is the positive Dehn twist about the boundary δi. We prove that for g ≥ 3, the boundary multitwist tδ1 tδ2 can be written as a product of arbitrarily large number of positive Dehn twists about nonseparating simple closed curves, extending a recent result of Baykur and Van Horn-Morris, who proved this result for g ≥ 8. This fact has...
Automorphisms of curve complexes on nonorientable surfaces
Atalan, Ferihe; Korkmaz, Mustafa (2014-01-01)
For a compact connected nonorientable surface N of genus g with n boundary components, we prove that the natural map from the mapping class group of N to the automorphism group of the curve complex of N is an isomorphism provided that g + n >= 5. We also prove that two curve complexes are isomorphic if and only if the underlying surfaces are diffeomorphic.
Arbitrarily Long Factorizations in Mapping Class Groups
DALYAN, ELİF; Korkmaz, Mustafa; Pamuk, Mehmetcik (2015-01-01)
On a compact oriented surface of genus g with n= 1 boundary components, d1, d2,..., dn, we consider positive factorizations of the boundary multitwist td1 td2 tdn, where tdi is the positive Dehn twist about the boundary di. We prove that for g= 3, the boundary multitwist td1 td2 can be written as a product of arbitrarily large number of positive Dehn twists about nonseparating simple closed curves, extending a recent result of Baykur and Van Horn- Morris, who proved this result for g= 8. This fact has immed...
Automorphisms of the Hatcher-Thurston complex
Irmak, Elmas; Korkmaz, Mustafa (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-12-01)
Let S be a compact, connected, orientable surface of positive genus. Let HT(S) be the Hatcher-Thurston complex of S. We prove that Ant HT(S) is isomorphic to the extended mapping class group of S modulo its center.
Automorphisms of complexes of curves on odd genus nonorientable surfaces
Atalan Ozan, Ferihe; Korkmaz, Mustafa; Department of Mathematics (2005)
Let N be a connected nonorientable surface of genus g with n punctures. Suppose that g is odd and g + n > 6. We prove that the automorphism group of the complex of curves of N is isomorphic to the mapping class group M of N.
