The abelianization of the level 2 mapping class group
[ Abstract ]
The level d mapping class group is a finite index subgroup of the mapping class group of an orientable closed surface. For d greater than or equal to 3, the abelianization of this group is equal to the first homology group of the moduli space of nonsingular curves with level d structure.
In this talk, we determine the abelianization of the level d mapping class group for d=2 and odd d. For even d greater than 2, we also determine it up to a cyclic group of order 2.
