Given a continuous map f : K -> M from a 2-dimensional CW complex into a closed surface, the Nielsen root number N(f) and the minimal number of roots mu(f) of f satisfy N(f) <= mu(f). But, there is a number mu(C)(f) associated to each Nielsen root class of f, and an important problem is to know when mu(f) = mu(C)(f)N(f). In addition to investigate this problem, we determine a relationship between mu(f) and mu((f) over tilde), when (f) over tilde f is a lifting of f through a covering space, and we find a connection between this problems, with which we answer several questions related to them when the range of the maps is the projective plane.
