On crossed homomorphisms on symplectic mapping class groups
[ Abstract ]
We consider a symplectic manifold M. For a relation between Chern classes of M and the cohomology class of the symplectic form, we construct a crossed homomorphism on the symplectomorphism group of M with values in the cohomology group of M. We show an application of it to the flux homomorphism. Then we see that it induces a one on the symplectic mapping class group of M and show a nontrivial example of it.
