Bounding genera of singular surfaces Ultimate motivation: understand the curve complex for noncompact surfaces. But today, only closed surfaces around. 1. Genus distance The curve complex of is hyperbolic, pseudoAnosov diffeos act loxodromically, moving vertices at a linear speed. Say … Continue reading
