Corrigendum: “Spectral rigidity of automorphic orbits in free groups”

Mathieu Carette, Stefano Francaviglia, Ilya Kapovich and Armando Martino

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 14 (2014) 3081–3088

Lemma 5.1 in our paper [CFKM] says that every infinite normal subgroup of Out(FN) contains a fully irreducible element; this lemma was substantively used in the proof of the main result, Theorem A in [CFKM]. Our proof of Lemma 5.1 in [CFKM] relied on a subgroup classification result of Handel and Mosher [HM], originally stated in [HM] for arbitrary subgroups H Out(FN). It subsequently turned out (see Handel and Mosher page 1 of [HM1]) that the proof of the Handel-Mosher theorem needs the assumption that H is finitely generated. Here we provide an alternative proof of Lemma 5.1 from [CFKM], which uses the corrected version of the Handel-Mosher theorem and relies on the 0–acylindricity of the action of Out(FN) on the free factor complex (due to Bestvina, Mann and Reynolds).
