Abstract: We show that a matrix A in SL(2g, Z) is induced by an orientation preserving homeomorphism phi:Fg --> Fg of a closed orientable surface of genus g if and only if A preserves the intersection product. We then give conditions for when a collection of homology classes in H1(Fg) may be represented by a collection of pairwise disjoint simple closed curves on Fg.
