In this note, we discuss an analogue of the Weil–Petersson metric for spaces of metric graphs and some of its properties. 

Pressure type metrics on spaces of metric graphs

In this note, we consider two Riemannian metrics on a moduli space of metric graphs. Each of them could be thought of as an analogue of the Weil–Petersson metric on the moduli space of metric graphs.

Entropy and the clique polynomial

This paper gives a sharp lower bound on the spectral radius ρ(A) of a reciprocal Perron–Frobenius matrix A∈M2g(Z) , and shows in particular that ρ(A)g⩾(3+5)/2 . This bound supports conjectures on the

Patterson-Sullivan currents, generic stretching factors and the asymmetric Lipschitz metric for Outer space

We quantitatively relate the Patterson-Sullivant currents and generic stretching factors for free group automorphisms to the asymmetric Lipschitz metric on Outer space and to Guirardel's intersection

We prove that the pressure metric on the Teichmüller space of a bordered surface is incomplete and that a completion can be given by the moduli space of metrics on a graph (dual to a special ideal

Pressure metrics for deformation spaces of quasifuchsian groups with parabolics

In this paper, we produce a mapping class group invariant pressure metric on the space QF(S) of quasiconformal deformations of a co-finite area Fuchsian group uniformizing a surface S. Our pressure

The geometry of the Weil-Petersson metric in complex dynamics

In this work, we study an analogue of the Weil-Petersson metric on the space of Blaschke products of degree 2 proposed by McMullen. Via the Bers embedding, one may view the Weil-Petersson metric as a

Entropy and the clique polynomial The Harvard community has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters

This paper gives a sharp lower bound on the spectral radius ρ ( A ) of a reciprocal Perron–Frobenius matrix A ∈ M 2 g ( Z ), and shows in particular that ρ ( A ) g ≥ (3 + √ 5) / 2. This bound

Thermodynamic metrics on outer space

The entropy metric and the pressure metric are considered, which can be seen as analogs of the Weil–Petersson metric on the Teichmüller space of a closed surface and it is shown that when the rank r is at least 4, the action of r on the completion of the Culler–Vogtmann outer space using the entropy metric has a fixed point.

Conformally covariant operators and conformal invariants on weighted graphs

Let $$G$$G be a finite connected simple graph. We define the moduli space of conformal structures on $$G$$G. We propose a definition of conformally covariant operators on graphs, motivated by Graham

Hyperbolic dynamics studies the iteration of maps on sets with some type of Lipschitz structure used to measure distance. In a hyperbolic system, some directions are uniformly contracted and others

Thermodynamics, dimension and the Weil–Petersson metric

In this paper we study branched coverings of metrized, simplicial trees F : T → T which arise from polynomial maps f : C → C with disconnected Julia sets. We show that the collection of all such

Ergodic theory concerns with the study of the long-time behavior of a dynamical system. An interesting result known as Birkhoff’s ergodic theorem states that under certain conditions, the time

To investigate the properties of a group G, it is often useful to realize G as a group of symmetries of some geometric object. For example, the classical modular group PSL(2,Z) can be thought of as a

Possibly the most interesting structures on the Teichmuller space are those defined directly from structures on a compact Riemann surface. The quintessential example is due to Riemann himself. The
