Let (S , ∗) be a closed oriented surface with a marked point, let G be a fixed group, and let ρ : π1(S ) −→ G be a representation such that the orbit of ρ under the action of the mapping class group… (More)

We produce a sequence of finite dimensional representations of the fundamental group π1(S ) of a closed surface where all simple closed curves act with finite order, but where each non–simple closed… (More)
