The proper geometric dimension of the mapping class group

Javier Aramayona and Conchita Martínez-Pérez

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 14 (2014) 217–227
Abstract

We show that the mapping class group of a closed surface admits a cocompact classifying space for proper actions of dimension equal to its virtual cohomological dimension.

Keywords
mapping class groups, classifying space for proper actions, cohomological dimension
