End periodic homeomorphisms and volumes of mapping tori
Marissa Kawehi Loving (Georgia Tech)
Monday 7th December, 2020 16:00-17:00 Online
I will discuss volumes of mapping tori associated to certain "dynamically interesting" homeomorphisms of infinite-type surfaces, inspired by a theorem of Brock (in the finite-type setting) relating the volume of a mapping torus to the translation distance of its monodromy on the pants graph. This talk represents joint work with Elizabeth Field, Heejoung Kim, and Chris Leininger.
The talk will be preceded by a tea time at 3:45pm. The Zoom link for the seminar is https://uofglasgow.zoom.us/j/91412568415 and the passcode is the genus of the two-dimensional sphere (4 letters, all lowercase).
