# From loom spaces to veering triangulations

@inproceedings{Schleimer2021FromLS, title={From loom spaces to veering triangulations}, author={Saul Schleimer and Henry Segerman}, year={2021} }

We introduce loom spaces, a generalisation of both the leaf spaces associated to pseudo-Anosov flows and the link spaces associated to veering triangulations. Following work of Guéritaud, we prove that there is a locally veering triangulation canonically associated to every loom space, and that the realisation of this triangulation is homeomorphic to R. Figure 1.1. The green and purple threads give transverse foliations.

We study the strongly connected components of the flow graph associated to a veering triangulation, and show that the infinitesimal components must be of a certain form, which have to do with subsets…

We introduce a new method of constructing Birkhoff sections for pseudoAnosov flows, which uses the connection between pseudo-Anosov flows and veering triangulations. This method allows for explicit…

We introduce veering branched surfaces as a dual way of studying veering triangulations. We then discuss some surgical operations on veering branched surfaces. Using these, we provide explicit…
