Abstract. On a compact oriented surface of genus g with n ≥ 1 boundary components, δ1, δ2, . . . , δn, we consider positive factorizations of the boundary multitwist tδ1 tδ2 · · ·tδn , where tδi is the positive Dehn twist ...
We give an elementary proof of a relation, first discovered in its full generality by Korkmaz, in the mapping class group of a closed orientable surface. Our proof uses only the well-known relations between Dehn twists. © TÜBİTAK.
