Geometry Topology Seminar
Monday, February 10, 2014 - 2:05pm
1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
I'll talk about joint work with Sam Taylor. We characterize convex cocompact subgroups of mapping class groups that arise as subgroups of specially embedded right-angled Artin groups. We use this to construct convex cocompact subgroups of Mod(S) whose orbit maps into the curve complex have small Lipschitz constants.
