The centered dual and the maximal injectivity radius of hyperbolic surfaces

Jason DeBlois

Geometry & Topology 19 (2015) 953–1014
Abstract

We give sharp upper bounds on the maximal injectivity radius of finite-area hyperbolic surfaces and use them, for each g 2, to identify a constant rg1,2 such that the set of closed genus-g hyperbolic surfaces with maximal injectivity radius at least r is compact if and only if r > rg1,2. The main tool is a version of the centered dual complex that we introduced earlier, a coarsening of the Delaunay complex. In particular, we bound the area of a compact centered dual two-cell below given lower bounds on its side lengths.
