If I take a plane with n holes, would the fundamental group be that of the "bouquet of n circles"? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_(topology [Broken]).) The bouquet of circles is the same as the unit line with n-1 points identified. All three spaces initially appear quite different so it would be interesting that they have the same fundamental group.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
