  • Titre: Dynamics on K3 surfaces: homogeneous and inhomogeneous

    Resumé: K3 surfaces are defined by algebraic equations and have moduli spaces that are homogeneous for appropriate Lie groups. At the same time, K3s admit dynamically interesting automorphisms and geometric structures which are far from homogeneous. I will discuss the interplay between the homogeneous structures on the moduli spaces and the geometry and dynamics of K3 automorphisms. Joint work with Valentino Tosatti.

  • Titre: Single-cylinder square-tiled surfaces

    Resumé: Square-tiled surfaces are Abelian differentials given by branched covers of the square torus. They can be thought of as the integer points of a stratum of the moduli space of Abelian differentials. As such, their counting asymptotic is important in computing volumes of strata. An important piece of combinatorial data is the number of horizontal and vertical cylinders in a square-tiled surface. By recent work of Delecroix-Goujard-Zograf-Zorich, square-tiled surfaces with one horizontal and one vertical cylinder, which we shall call 1,1-square-tiled surfaces have a definite proportion among all square-tiled surfaces and in fact, equidistribute as the number of squares goes to infinity.

    It is natural to ask what is the minimum number of squares required for a 1,1-square-tiled surface in a given stratum. In this talk, we construct such 1,1-square-tiled surfaces in every connected component of every stratum of Abelian differentials. With the exception of the hyperelliptic components, this can be done with the minimum number of squares required for a square-tiled surface in the ambient stratum. As an application, time permitting, we will use the main result to demonstrate the ubiquity of "ratio-optimising" pseudo-Anosovs.
