Configuration spaces of graphs

Takeshi Unohara – GJM, Volume 1, Issue 1 (2016), 28–42.

Given a graph \Gamma with a single essential vertex, we determine the fundamental group \pi_1C_n(\Gamma) of the configuration space C_n(\Gamma) of \Gamma. This result is a generalization of Theorem 4.6 in [5]. We also discuss connectivity of configuration spaces of graphs. We use the CW complex model introduced in [15,16] to study the configuration spaces of graphs
