Algebraic ending laminations and quasiconvexity

Mahan Mj and Kasra Rafi

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 1883–1916
Abstract

We explicate a number of notions of algebraic laminations existing in the literature, particularly in the context of an exact sequence

1 H G Q 1

of hyperbolic groups. These laminations arise in different contexts: existence of Cannon–Thurston maps; closed geodesics exiting ends of manifolds; dual to actions on –trees.

We use the relationship between these laminations to prove quasiconvexity results for finitely generated infinite-index subgroups of H, the normal subgroup in the exact sequence above.

Keywords
