Abstract

The purpose of this article is to describe the integral cohomology of the braid group B3 and SL2 (Z) with local coefficients in a classical geometric representation given by symmetric powers of the natural symplectic representation. These groups have a description in terms of the so-called ‘divided polynomial algebra’. The results show a strong relation between the torsion part of the computed cohomology and fibrations related to loop spaces of spheres.
