Topology Seminar

Speaker: 
Joshua Pankau
Topic: 
"Stretch Factors Coming From Thurston's Construction"

Abstract:
This talk is a continuation of a topology seminar talk I gave last fall, in which I was discussing my work on stretch factors of pseudo-Anosov maps. I will give a recap of Thurston's construction and what is known about stretch factors. Then I will talk about my results related to classifying stretch factors from Thurston's construction and outline some of the proofs.
