Abstract We give a new proof of Moeckel’s result that for any finite index subgroup of the modular group, almost every real number has its regular continued fraction approximants equidistributed into the cusps of the subgroup according to the weighted cusp widths. Our proof uses a skew product over a cross-section for the geodesic flow on the modular surface. Our techniques show that the same result holds true for approximants found by Nakada’s $\alpha $-continued fractions, and also that the… 
Gap distribution of Farey fractions determined by subgroups of SL(2,Z)
For a given finite index subgroup H of SL(2,Z), we use a process developed by Fisher and Schmidt to lift a Poincare section of the horocycle flow on SL(2,R)/SL(2,Z) found by Athreya and Cheung to the

The Boca-Cobeli-Zaharescu Map Analogue for the Hecke Triangle Groups $G_q$
The Farey sequence $\mathcal{F}(Q)$ at level $Q$ is the sequence of irreducible fractions in $[0, 1]$ with denominators not exceeding $Q$, arranged in increasing order of magnitude. A simple
Non-trivial matrix actions preserve normality for continued fractions
A seminal result due to Wall states that if $x$ is normal to a given base $b$ , then so is $rx+s$ for any rational numbers $r,s$ with $r\neq 0$ . We show that a stronger result is true for normality

Cross sections for geodesic flows and α-continued fractions
We adjust Arnoux's coding, in terms of regular continued fractions, of the geodesic flow on the modular surface to give a cross section on which the return map is a double cover of the natural
Geodesic flow on the Teichmueller disk of the regular octagon, cutting sequences and octagon continued fractions maps
In this paper we give a geometric interpretation of the renormalization algorithm and of the continued fraction map that we introduced in arxiv:0905.0871 to give a characterization of symbolic

In this expository article we describe the two main methods of representing geodesics on surfaces of constant negative curvature by symbolic sequences and their development. A geometric method stems
Fractions continues sur les surfaces de Veech
We define a geometrical continued fraction algorithm in the setting of regular polygons with an even number of sides., The definition of the algorithm uses linear transformations generating a group

We discuss the nearestq-multiple continued frac- tions and their duals forq = 2cos � π q � which are closely related to the Hecke triangle groups Gq, q = 3,4,.... They have been in- troduced in the

Veech's original examples of translation surfaces $\mathcal V_q$ with what McMullen has dubbed "optimal dynamics'' arise from appropriately gluing sides of two copies of the regular $q$-gon, with $q
