Let K(S) be the subgroup of the extended mapping class group, Mod(S), generated by Dehn twists about separating curves. In our earlier paper, we showed that Comm(K(S))≅Aut(K(S))≅Mod(S) when S is a closed, connected, orientable surface of genus g ≥ 4. By modifying our original proof, we show that the same result holds for g ≥ 3, thus confirming Farb’s conjecture in all cases (the statement is not true for g ≤ 2).
