Automorphisms of the mapping class group of a nonorientable surface

Ferihe Atalan , Błażej Szepietowski


Let S be a nonorientable surface of genus g≥5 with n≥0 punctures, and Mod(S) its mapping class group. We define the complexity of S to be the maximum rank of a free abelian subgroup of Mod(S). Suppose that S1 and S2 are two such surfaces of the same complexity. We prove that every isomorphism Mod(S1)→Mod(S2) is induced by a diffeomorphism S1→S2. This is an analogue of Ivanov’s theorem on automorphisms of the mapping class groups of an orientable surface, and also an extension and improvement of the first author’s previous result.
