NPC - Non-positive curvature group actions and cohomology If two simple closed curves on a closed surface lie in the same non-trivial homology class, then they bound a singular orientable surface. One can relate the minimal genus of such to distances in the curve graph. I will describe this, and some related results. The proofs are not hard, but call for some non-trivial input. Maybe there is a simple combinatorial argument. This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- All CMS events
