Towards representation stability for the second homology of the Torelli group

Søren K Boldsen and Mia Hauge Dollerup

Geometry & Topology 16 (2012) 1725–1765
Abstract

We show for g 7 that the second homology group of the Torelli group, H2(g,1; ), is generated as an Sp(2g, )–module by the image of H2(6,1; ) under the stabilization map. In the process we also show that the quotient B(Fg,i;i)g,i by the Torelli group of the complex of arcs with identity permutation is (g2)–connected for i = 1,2.
