Recently Bowden, Hensel and Webb defined the fine graph of surfaces, extending the notion of curve graphs of surfaces to the study of homeomorphism or diffeomorphism groups of surfaces. Later Long, Margalit, Pham, Verbene and Yau proved that for a closed surface of genus g≥2, the automorphism group of the fine graph is no larger than the homeomorphism group of the surface, while Bowden, Hensel, Mann, Militon and Webb related properties of the rotation sets of torus homeomorphisms to their action on this fine graph. In undergoing joint work with Frédéric Le Roux, we extend the result of automorphism groups to the torus case, and in fact, to any surface of positive genus, and explore further the properties of homeomorphisms related to their action on the fine graph.
