Centralizers of finite subgroups of the mapping class group

Hao Liang

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 1513–1530
Abstract

In this paper, we study the action of finite subgroups of the mapping class group of a surface on the curve complex. We prove that if the diameter of the almost fixed point set of a finite subgroup H is big enough, then the centralizer of H is infinite.
