  author={Etienne Bonnafoux and M. Kany and Pascal Kattler and Carlos Matheus and Rogelio Nino and Manuel Sedano-Mendoza and Ferr{\'a}n Valdez and Gabriela Weitze-Schmithusen},
In this note, we extend the scope of our previous work joint with Bonnafoux, Kattler, Ni˜no, Sedano-Mendoza, Valdez and Weitze-Schmith¨usen by showing the arithmeticity of the Kontsevich–Zorich monodromies of infinite families of square-tiled surfaces of genera four, five and six.

Kontsevich-Zorich monodromy groups of translation covers of some platonic solids

. We compute the Zariski closure of the Kontsevich–Zorich monodromy groups arising from certain square-tiled surfaces that are geometrically motivated. Specifically we consider three surfaces that



An origami of genus 3 with arithmetic Kontsevich–Zorich monodromy

Abstract In this we exploit the arithmeticity criterion of Oh and Benoist–Miquel to exhibit an origami in the principal stratum of the moduli space of translation surfaces of genus three whose

Arithmeticity of Four Hypergeometric Monodromy Groups Associated to Calabi–Yau Threefolds

In [12], we show that three of the fourteen hypergeometric monodromy groups associated to Calabi-Yau threefolds are arithmetic. Brav-Thomas (in [3]) show that seven of the remaining eleven are thin.

Quaternionic covers and monodromy of the Kontsevich-Zorich cocycle in orthogonal groups

We give an example of a Teichm\"uller curve which contains, in a factor of its monodromy, a group which was not observed before. Namely, it has Zariski closure equal to the group $SO^*(6)$ in its

We study several types of curves and higher-dimensional objects inside the moduli spaces of curves, insisting on their arithmetic properties in the perspective of Grothendieck–Teichmüller theory. On

A cyclotomic family of thin hypergeometric monodromy groups in Sp4(R)

We exhibit an infinite family of discrete subgroups of Sp4(R) which have a number of remarkable properties. Our results are established by showing that each group plays pingpong on an appropriate set

Prime arithmetic Teichmuller discs in H(2)

It is well-known that Teichmuller discs that pass through "integer points'' of the moduli space of abelian differentials are very special: they are closed complex geodesics. However, the structure of

Billiards and Teichmüller curves on Hilbert modular surfaces

This paper exhibits an infinite collection of algebraic curves isometrically embedded in the moduli space of Riemann surfaces of genus two. These Teichmuller curves lie on Hilbert modular surfaces

Uniformization of some weight 3 variations of Hodge structure, Anosov representations, and Lyapunov exponents

We develop a class of uniformizations for certain weight 3 variations of Hodge structure (VHS). The analytic properties of the VHS are used to establish a conjecture of Eskin, Kontsevich, M\"oller,

Arithmeticity of discrete subgroups containing horospherical lattices

Let $G$ be a semisimple real algebraic Lie group of real rank at least two and $U$ be the unipotent radical of a non-trivial parabolic subgroup. We prove that a discrete Zariski dense subgroup of $G$

Lyapunov spectrum of ball quotients with applications to commensurability questions

We determine the Lyapunov spectrum of ball quotients arising from cyclic coverings. The computations are performed by rewriting the sum of Lyapunov exponents as ratios of intersection numbers and by
