Abstract: Turaev introduced in the seventies two fundamental operations on the algebra $\mathbb{Q}[\pi]$ of the fundamental group $\pi$ of a surface with boundary [1]. The first operation is binary and measures the intersection of two oriented curves on the surface, while the second operation is unary and computes the self-intersection of an oriented curve. It is already known that Turaev's intersection pairing has a simple algebraic description when the $I$-adic completion of the group algebra $\mathbb{Q}[\pi]$ is appropriately identified to the degree-completion of the tensor algebra $T(H)$ of $H:=H_1(\pi;\mathbb{Q})$.
We will show that Turaev's self-intersection map has a similar description in the case of a disk with $p$ punctures. In this special case, we will consider those identifications between the completions of $\mathbb{Q}[\pi]$ and $T(H)$ that arise from the Kontsevich integral by embedding $\pi$ into the pure braid group on $(p+1)$ strands [2, 3]. As a matter of fact, our algebraic description involves a formal power series which is explicitly determined by the Drinfeld associator $\Phi$ entering into the definition of the Kontsevich integral; this series is essentially Enriquez' $\Gamma$-function of $\Phi$ [4]. If time allows, we will also discuss the case of higher-genus surfaces. (This talk is based on the preprint [5].)
