Distortion of surfaces in graph manifolds

G Christopher Hruska and Hoang Thanh Nguyen

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 363–395
Abstract

Let $S↬N$ be an immersed horizontal surface in a $3$–dimensional graph manifold. We show that the fundamental group of the surface $S$ is quadratically distorted whenever the surface is virtually embedded (ie separable) and is exponentially distorted when the surface is not virtually embedded.
