Parabolics in the Fine Curve Graph


Speaker: Sebastian Hensel, LMU
Location: Zoom Zoom
Start time: Tue, Feb 8 2022, 1:10PM

The curve graph is a well-studied and useful tool to study
3-manifolds, and mapping class groups of surfaces. The fine curve graph is a recent variant on which the full homeomorphism group of a surface acts in an interesting way. In this talk we discuss some
recent results which highlight behaviour not encountered in the "classical" curve graph. In particular, we highlight connections to surface dynamics and construct homeomorphisms acting parabolically.
This is joint work with Jonathan Bowden, Katie Mann, Emmanuel Militon and Richard Webb.
