Cylinder deformations in orbit closures of translation surfaces

- A. Wright
- Mathematics
- 17 February 2013

Let M be a translation surface. We show that certain deformations of M supported on the set of all cylinders in a given direction remain in the GL(2,R)-orbit closure of M. Applications are given… Expand

The algebraic hull of the Kontsevich-Zorich cocycle

We compute the algebraic hull of the Kontsevich-Zorich cocycle over any GL^+_2(R) invariant subvariety of the Hodge bundle, and derive from this finiteness results on such subvarieties.

Sums of adjoint orbits and L2-singular dichotomy for SU(m)

- A. Wright
- Mathematics
- 1 May 2011

Abstract Let G be a real compact connected simple Lie group, and g its Lie algebra. We study the problem of determining, from root data, when a sum of adjoint orbits in g , or a product of conjugacy… Expand

The touchy subject of haptics

After more than 20 years of research and development, are haptic interfaces finally getting ready to enter the computing mainstream?

Cubic curves and totally geodesic subvarieties of moduli space

- 1 May 2017

In this paper we present the rst example of a primitive, totally geodesic subvariety F M g;n with dim(F ) > 1. The variety we consider is a surfaceF M 1;3 dened using the projective geometry of

Schwarz triangle mappings and Teichmüller curves: the Veech–Ward–Bouw–Möller curves

- A. Wright
- Mathematics
- 13 March 2012

We study a family of Teichmüller curves $${\mathcal{T}\,(n,m)}$$ constructed by Bouw and Möller, and previously by Veech and Ward in the cases n = 2,3. We simplify the proof that… Expand

Schwarz triangle mappings and Teichm\"uller curves: abelian square-tiled surfaces

- A. Wright
- Mathematics
- 13 March 2012

We consider normal covers of CP^1 with abelian deck group, branched over at most four points. Families of such covers yield arithmetic Teichm\"uller curves, whose period mapping may be described… Expand

The boundary of an affine invariant submanifold

- M. Mirzakhani, A. Wright
- Mathematics
- 6 August 2015

We study the boundary of an affine invariant submanifold of a stratum of translation surfaces in a partial compactification consisting of all finite area Abelian differentials over nodal Riemann… Expand
