“Constructions of Lefschetz fibrations using cyclic group actions”
Abstract: We construct families of Lefschetz fibrations over S2 using finite order cyclic group actions on the product manifolds ΣgxΣg for g >0. We also obtain more families of Lefschetz fibrations by applying the rational blow-down operation to these Lefschetz fibrations. This is joint work with Anar Akhmedov.
