An analogue of the Johnson-Morita theory for the handlebody group (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Johnson-Morita theory provides an approach for the mapping class group of a surface by considering its actions on the successive nilpotent quotients of the fundamental group of the surface. In this talk, after an outline of the original theory, we will present an analogue of the Johnson-Morita theory for the handlebody group, i.e. the mapping class group of a handlebody. This is joint work with Kazuo Habiro; as we shall explain if time allows, our motivation is to recover the "tree reduction" of a certain functor on the category of bottom tangles in handlebodies that we introduced (a few years ago) using the Kontsevich integral.
