Integral Riemann–Roch formulae for cyclic subgroups of mapping class groups



The first author conjectured certain relations for Morita–Mumford classes and Newton classes in the integral cohomology of mapping class groups (integral Riemann–Roch formulae). In this paper, the conjecture is verified for cyclic subgroups of mapping class groups.
