Hyperbolicity of the graph of nonseparating multicurves

Ursula Hamenstädt

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 14 (2014) 1759–1778
Abstract

A nonseparating multicurve on a surface S of genus g 2 with m 0 punctures is a multicurve c so that S c is connected. For k 1 define the graph NC(S,k) of nonseparating k–multicurves to be the graph whose vertices are nonseparating multicurves with k components and where two such multicurves are connected by an edge of length one if they can be realized disjointly and differ by a single component. We show that if k < g2 + 1, then NC(S,k) is hyperbolic.
