Intersection of curves on surfaces and their applications to mapping class groups
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 65 (2015) no. 6, p. 2711-2762

We introduce an operation which measures the self intersections of paths on an oriented surface. As applications, we give a criterion of the realizability of a generalized Dehn twist, and derive a geometric constraint on the image of the Johnson homomorphisms.

Nous introduisons une opération qui mesure l’auto-intersection des chemins sur une surface orientée. Comme applications, nous donnons un critère de la réalisabilité d’un twist de Dehn généralisé, et nous obtenons une contrainte géométrique sur l’image des homomorphismes de Johnson.
