We show that, in the character variety of surface group representations into the Lie group PSL(2,R) × PSL(2,R), the compactification of the maximal component introduced by the second author is a closed ball upon which the mapping class group acts. We study the dynamics of this action. Finally, we describe the boundary points geometrically as (A1 × A1, 2)-valued mixed structures.

Limits of Blaschke metrics
We find a compactification of the $\mathrm{SL}(3,\mathbb{R})$-Hitchin component by studying the degeneration of the Blaschke metrics on the associated equivariant affine spheres. In the process, we

In this paper, we study the geometric and dynamical properties of maximal representations of surface groups into Hermitian Lie groups of rank 2. Combining tools from Higgs bundle theory, the theory

We prove that given a Hitchin representation in a real split rank 2 group $\mathsf G_0$, there exists a unique equivariant minimal surface in the corresponding symmetric space. As a corollary, we

In this paper we describe the space of maximal components of the character variety of surface group representations into PSp(4,R) and Sp(4,R). For every rank 2 real Lie group of Hermitian type, we
A structure theorem for geodesic currents and length spectrum compactifications
We find a canonical decomposition of a geodesic current on a surface of finite type arising from a topological decomposition of the surface along special geodesics. We show that each component either
Length spectra and degeneration of flat metrics
In this paper we consider flat metrics (semi-translation structures) on surfaces of finite type. There are two main results. The first is a complete description of when a set of simple closed curves
Maximal Sp(4,R) surface group representations, minimal immersions and cyclic surfaces
Let $S$ be a closed surface of genus at least $2$. For each maximal representation $\rho: \pi_1(S)\rightarrow\mathsf{Sp}(4,\mathbb{R})$ in one of the $2g-3$ exceptional connected components, we prove
Currents, systoles, and compactifications of character varieties
We study the Thurston--Parreau boundary both of the Hitchin and of the maximal character varieties and determine therein an open set of discontinuity for the action of the mapping class group. This
