We quantitatively relate the Patterson-Sullivant currents and generic stretching factors for free group automorphisms to the asymmetric Lipschitz metric on Outer space and to Guirardel's intersection number.

Spectral theorems for random walks on mapping class groups and Out(FN)
We establish spectral theorems for random walks on mapping class groups of connected, closed, oriented, hyperbolic surfaces, and on Out(FN ). In both cases, we relate the asymptotics of the
Spectral Theorems for Random Walks on Mapping Class Groups and Out $(\boldsymbol{F}_{\boldsymbol{N}})$
We establish spectral theorems for random walks on mapping class groups of connected, closed, oriented, hyperbolic surfaces, and on $\text{Out}(F_N)$. In both cases, we relate the asymptotics of the

Currents on free groups
We study the properties of geodesic currents on free groups, particularly the "intersection form" that is similar to Bonahon's notion of the intersection number between geodesic currents on
A Weil–Petersson type metric on spaces of metric graphs
In this note, we discuss an analogue of the Weil–Petersson metric for spaces of metric graphs and some of its properties.
An algorithm to detect full irreducibility by bounding the volume of periodic free factors
We provide an effective algorithm for determining whether an element φ of the outer automorphism group of a free group is fully irreducible. Our method produces a finite list that can be checked for
The Gromov topology on R-trees
Current twisting and nonsingular matrices
We show that for k at least 3, given any matrix in GL(k,Z), there is a hyperbolic fully irreducible automorphism of the free group of rank k whose induced action on Z^k is the given matrix.
Growth of intersection numbers for free group automorphisms
For a fully irreducible automorphism ϕ of the free group Fk we compute the asymptotics of the intersection number n ↦ i(T, T′ϕn) for the trees T and T′ in Outer space. We also obtain qualitative
A Bers-like proof of the existence of train tracks for free group automorphisms
Using Lipschitz distance on Outer space we give another proof of the train track theorem.
Non-uniquely ergodic foliations of thin type
We construct a minimal foliation of thin type which is not uniquely ergodic. The notion of thin type relates to Rips' classification of foliations on 2-complexes.
Strongly Contracting Geodesics in Outer Space
We study the Lipschitz metric on Outer Space and prove that fully irreducible elements of Out(F_n) act by hyperbolic isometries with axes which are strongly contracting. As a corollary, we prove that
