Minimal dilatations of pseudo-Anosovs generated by the magic $3$–manifold and their asymptotic behavior

Eiko Kin, Sadayoshi Kojima and Mitsuhiko Takasawa

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 3537–3602

This paper concerns the set ̂ of pseudo-Anosovs which occur as monodromies of fibrations on manifolds obtained from the magic 3–manifold N by Dehn filling three cusps with a mild restriction. Let N(r) be the manifold obtained from N by Dehn filling one cusp along the slope r . We prove that for each g (resp. g0(mod6)), the minimum among dilatations of elements (resp. elements with orientable invariant foliations) of ̂ defined on a closed surface Σg of genus g is achieved by the monodromy of some Σg–bundle over the circle obtained from N( 3 2) or N( 1 2) by Dehn filling both cusps. These minimizers are the same ones identified by Hironaka, Aaber and Dunfield, Kin and Takasawa independently. In the case g 6(mod12) we find a new family of pseudo-Anosovs defined on Σg with orientable invariant foliations obtained from N(6) or N(4) by Dehn filling both cusps. We prove that if δg+ is the minimal dilatation of pseudo-Anosovs with orientable invariant foliations defined on Σg, then

where δ(Dn) is the minimal dilatation of pseudo-Anosovs on an n–punctured disk. We also study monodromies of fibrations on N(1). We prove that if δ1,n is the minimal dilatation of pseudo-Anosovs on a genus 1 surface with n punctures, then
