From loom spaces to veering triangulations

  title={From loom spaces to veering triangulations},
  author={Saul Schleimer and Henry Segerman},
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.

Dynamics of veering triangulations: infinitesimal components of their flow graphs and applications

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

Constructing Birkhoff sections for pseudo-Anosov flows with controlled complexity

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

Veering branched surfaces, surgeries, and geodesic flows

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



Veering triangulations admit strict angle structures

The weaker notion of a “veering triangulation” is defined and used to show that all veering Triangulations admit strict angle structures.

Ideal Triangulations of Pseudo-Anosov Mapping Tori

We show how to construct an ideal triangulation of a mapping torus of a pseudo-Anosov map punctured along the singular fibers. This gives rise to a new conjugacy invariant of mapping classes, and a

Veering triangulations and Cannon–Thurston maps

Any hyperbolic surface bundle over the circle gives rise to a continuous surjection from the circle to the sphere, by work of Cannon–Thurston and Bowditch. We prove that the order in which this

Taut ideal triangulations of 3–manifolds

A taut ideal triangulation of a 3{manifold is a topological ideal triangulation with extra combinatorial structure: a choice of transverse orientation on each ideal 2{simplex, satisfying two simple

Stable loops and almost transverse surfaces

We show that the cone over a fibered face of a compact fibered hyperbolic 3-manifold is dual to the cone generated by the homology classes of finitely many curves called minimal stable loops living

Flows, growth rates, and the veering polynomial

For a pseudo-Anosov flow φ without perfect fits on a closed 3-manifold, Agol– Guéritaud produce a veering triangulation τ on the manifold M obtained by deleting φ’s singular orbits. We show that τ

The structure of branching in Anosov flows of 3-manifolds

Abstract. In this article we study the topology of Anosov flows in 3-manifolds. Specifically we consider the lifts to the universal cover of the stable and unstable foliations and analyze the leaf

Ideal boundaries of pseudo-Anosov flows and uniform convergence groups with connections and applications to large scale geometry

Given a general pseudo-Anosov flow in a closed three manifold, the orbit space of the lifted flow to the universal cover is homeomorphic to an open disk. We construct a natural compactification of

Diagonal changes for surfaces in hyperelliptic components

We describe geometric algorithms that generalize the classical continued fraction algorithm for the torus to all translation surfaces in hyperelliptic components of translation surfaces. We show that
