We investigate branched regular finite abelian A-covers of the 2-sphere, where every homeomorphism of the base (preserving the branch locus) lifts to a homeomorphism of the covering surface. In this study, we prove that if A is a finite abelian p-group of rank k and Σ → S2 is a regular A-covering branched over n points such that every homeomorphism f : S2 → S2 lifts to Σ, then n = k+1. We will also give a partial classification of such covers for rank two finite p-groups. In particular, we prove that for a regular branched A-covering π : Σ → S2, where A = Zpr × Zpt , 1 ≤ r ≤ t, all homeomorphisms f : S2 → S2 lift to those of Σ if and only if t = r or t = r + 1 and p = 3.

We investigate branched regular finite abelian A-covers of the 2-sphere, where every homeomorphism of the base (preserving the branch locus) lifts to a homeomorphism of the covering surface. In this study, we prove that if A is a finite abelian p-group of rank k and Sigma -> S-2 is a regular A-covering branched over n points such that every homeomorphism f:S-2 -> S-2 lifts to Sigma, then n = k + 1. We will also give a partial classification of such covers for rank two finite p-groups. In particular, we prov...
Liftable homeomorphisms of cyclic and rank two finite abelian branched covers over the real projective plane
Atalan, Ferihe; Medetogullari, Elif; Ozan, Yıldıray (Elsevier BV, 2021-02-01)
© 2020 Elsevier B.V.In this note, we investigate the property for regular branched finite abelian covers of the real projective plane, where each homeomorphism of the base (preserving the branch locus) lifts to a homeomorphism of the covering surface.
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.
Value sets of bivariate folding polynomials over finite fields
Küçüksakallı, Ömer (2018-11-01)
We find the cardinality of the value sets of polynomial maps associated with simple complex Lie algebras B-2 and G(2) over finite fields. We achieve this by using a characterization of their fixed points in terms of sums of roots of unity.
A note on the generalized Matsumoto relation
DALYAN, ELİF; Medetogullari, Elif; Pamuk, Mehmetcik (2017-01-01)
We give an elementary proof of a relation, first discovered in its full generality by Korkmaz, in the mapping class group of a closed orientable surface. Our proof uses only the well-known relations between Dehn twists.
