A Topological Study of the Grothendieck-Teichmüeller Group

We aim to get a topological understanding of the Grothendieck-Teichmüller group GT, one of the most mysterious objects in modern mathematics. To this end, we propose to study the Grothendieck-Teichmüller group by examining its action on a simple model of the Teichmüller tower, constructed using the mapping class groups of surfaces.
