Brunnian braids on surfaces

Valery G Bardakov, Roman Mikhailov, Vladimir V Vershinin and Jie Wu

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 12 (2012) 1607–1648
Abstract

We determine a set of generators for the Brunnian braids on a general surface M for MS2 or P2. For the case M = S2 or P2, a set of generators for the Brunnian braids on M is given by our generating set together with the homotopy groups of a 2–sphere.
