A presentation for the baseleaf preserving mapping class group of the punctured solenoid

Abstract

We give a presentation for the baseleaf preserving mapping class group MCG() of the punctured solenoid . The generators for our presentation were introduced previously, and several relations among them were derived. In addition, we show that MCG() has no non-trivial central elements. Our main tool is a new complex of triangulations of the disk upon which MCG() acts.
