End invariants and the classification of hyperbolic 3-manifolds
These notes are a biased guide to some recent developments in the deformation theory of hyperbolic 3-manifolds and Kleinian groups. This field has its roots in the work of Poincaré and Klein, and
Geometry of the complex of curves I: Hyperbolicity
The Complex of Curves on a Surface is a simplicial complex whose vertices are homotopy classes of simple closed curves, and whose simplices are sets of homotopy classes which can be realized
The Cannon–Thurston map for punctured-surface groups
Let Γ be the fundamental group of a compact surface group with non-empty boundary. We suppose that Γ admits a properly discontinuous strictly type preserving action on hyperbolic 3-space such that
Quadratic differentials arise naturally in the study of Teichmuller space and Teichmuller geodesics, in particular. A quadratic differential q on a surface S defines a singular Euclidean metric on S.
We give an overview of the theory of Cannon-Thurston maps which forms one of the links between the complex analytic and hyperbolic geometric study of Kleinian groups. We also briefly sketch
Measured foliations and harmonic maps of surfaces
Fix a Riemannian surface of negative curvature (N, h), and a differentiable surface M g of the same genus g that will host various structures. Also fix a diffeomorphism f0 : M → N . It is well known
The Masur–Minsky distance formula estimates word length in the mapping class group of a surface S up to additive and multiplicative errors bounded by some constant C(S) which depends on the surface
Quasi-Fuchsian 3-Manifolds and Metrics on Teichm\
An almost Fuchsian 3-manifold is a quasi-Fuchsian manifold which contains an incompressible closed minimal surface with principal curvatures in the range of $(-1,1)$. Such a 3-manifold $M$ admits a
Extremal length geometry on Teichmüller spaces
In this thesis we are interested in the extremal length geometry of Teichmuller space and the links with other geometries. In particular, we work on two different compactifications of Teichmuller


On a class of geodesics in Teichmiuller space
The study of the geometry of the classical Teichmiiller spaces was begun in 1959 by Kravetz [9]. The starting point was the classical theorem of TeichmUller on extremal quasiconformal maps between
Harmonic maps into hyperbolic 3-manifolds
High-energy degeneration of harmonic maps of Riemann surfaces into a hyperbolic 3-manifold target is studied, generalizing results of [M 1] in which the target is two-dimensional. The Hopf foliation
Ends of hyperbolic 3-manifolds
Let N = H3/F be a hyperbolic 3-manifold which is homeomorphic to the interior of a compact 3-manifold. We prove that N is geometrically tame. As a consequence, we prove that F's limit set L. is
Analytic Aspects of the Harmonic Map Problem
A fundamental nonlinear object in differential geometry is a map between manifolds. If the manifolds have Riemannian metrics, then it is natural to choose representaives for maps which respect the
Extremal length geometry of teichmüller space
Assume τ is a point in the Teichmuller space of a Riemann surface which is compact or obtainable from a compact surface by deleting a finite number of punctures. Let be extermal lengths of two
Hyperbolic Structures on 3-manifolds, I: Deformation of acylindrical manifolds
This is the first in a series of papers showing that Haken manifolds have hyperbolic structures; this first was published, the second two have existed only in preprint form, and later preprints
Combinatorics of Train Tracks.
Measured geodesic laminations are a natural generalization of simple closed curves in surfaces, and they play a decisive role in various developments in two-and three-dimensional topology, geometry
Géométrie et théorie des groupes: les groupes hyperboliques de Gromov
The book is an introduction of Gromov's theory of hyperbolic spaces and hyperbolic groups. It contains complete proofs of some basic theorems which are due to Gromov, and emphasizes some important
