Dynamics of the mapping class group action on the variety of $\mathrm{PSL}_2 \mathbb{C}$ characters

Abstract

We study the action of the mapping class group Mod(S) on the boundary Q of quasifuchsian space Q. Among other results, Mod(S) is shown to be topologically transitive on the subset C Q of manifolds without a conformally compact end. We also prove that any open subset of the character variety X(π1(S),SL2) intersecting Q does not admit a nonconstant Mod(S)–invariant meromorphic function. This is related to a question of Goldman.
