The Chas-Sullivan conjecture for a surface of infinite genus (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Let \\Sigma_{\\infty,1} be the inductive limit of compact
oriented surfaces with one boundary component. We prove the
center of the Goldman Lie algebra of the surface \\Sigma_{\\infty,1}
is spanned by the constant loop.
A similar statement for a closed oriented surface was conjectured
by Chas and Sullivan, and proved by Etingof. Our result is deduced
from a computation of the center of the Lie algebra of oriented chord
diagrams.
If time permits, the Lie bracket on the space of linear chord diagrams
will be discussed. This talk is based on a joint work with Yusuke Kuno
(Hiroshima U./JSPS).
