- 3. Surjective homomorphisms between surface braid groups Arxiv Notes Classify surjective homomorphisms from PB_n(S_g,p) to PB_m(S_g,p), n-strand braid group to m-strand braid group.
- 2. The number of fiberings of a surface bundle over a surface Arxiv Compute the number of ways Atiyah Kodaira example can fiber over a surface.
- 1. The universal n-pointed surface bundle only has n sections Arxiv Classify homomorphisms from PB_n(S_g) to Pi_1(S_g), n-strand braid group to 1-strand braid group.

Then we compute the automorphism group of PB_n(S_g,p)

Surprisingly, in contrast to the n=1 case, any automorphism of PB_n(S_g,p), n>1 is geometric.(2017)

We also compute the fibering number of some other examples. (2017)

Using this, we compute the number of homotopically different sections of universal bundles on M_g,n. (2016)

In Winter 2014 I passed my topic exam, on Characteristic Classes of Surface Bundles, under the supervision of Benson Farb. The proposal is here.
