We establish a structure theorem for the integral points on moduli of special linear rank two local systems over surfaces, using mapping class group descent and boundedness results for systoles of local systems.

Abstract We show that every coarse moduli space, parametrizing complex special linear rank-2 local systems with fixed boundary traces on a surface with nonempty boundary, is log Calabi–Yau in that it
Arithmetic of curves on moduli of local systems
We study the Diophantine geometry of algebraic curves on relative moduli of special linear rank two local systems over surfaces. We prove that the set of integral points on any nondegenerately
Surface group representations in SL2(ℂ) with finite mapping class orbits
. Given an oriented surface of positive genus with finitely many punctures, we classify the finite orbits of the mapping class group action on the moduli space of semisimple complex special linear two
Diophantine Analysis on Moduli of Local Systems
We develop a Diophantine analysis on moduli of special linear rank two local systems over surfaces with prescribed boundary traces. We first show that such a moduli space is a log Calabi-Yau variety
Surfaces, braids, Stokes matrices, and points on spheres
Moduli spaces of points on $n$-spheres carry natural actions of braid groups. For $n=0$, $1$, and $3$, we prove that these symmetries extend to actions of mapping class groups of positive genus
Commutators in $SL_2$ and Markoff surfaces I
We show that the commutator equation over $SL_2\Z$ satisfies a profinite local to global principle, while it can fail with infinitely many  exceptions for $SL_2(\Z[\frac{1}{p}])$. The source of the
Brauer-Manin obstruction for Markoff-type cubic surfaces
Following [GS17], [LM20] and [CTWX20], we study the local-global principle and Brauer–Manin obstruction for integral points on similar Markoff-type cubic surfaces. Furthermore, we construct a family
Dominating surface-group representations into $\mathrm{PSL}_2 (\mathbb{C})$ in the relative representation variety
Let $\rho$ be a representation of the fundamental group of a punctured surface into $\mathrm{PSL}_2 (\mathbb{C})$ that is not Fuchsian. We prove that there exists a Fuchsian representation that
Integral points on Markoff type cubic surfaces
For integers $k$, we consider the affine cubic surface $V_{k}$ given by $M({\bf x})=x_{1}^2 + x_{2}^2 +x_{3}^2 -x_{1}x_{2}x_{3}=k$. We show that for almost all $k$ the Hasse Principle holds, namely
