Stable splittings of surface mapping spaces

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the homotopy type of mapping spaces from Riemann surfaces to spheres. Our main result is a stable splitting of these spaces into a bouquet of new finite spectra. From this and classical results, one may deduce splittings of the configuration spaces of surfaces.
