Least dilatation of pure surface braids

Marissa Loving

Appendix: Marissa Loving and Hugo Parlier

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 941–964
Abstract

We study the minimal dilatation of pseudo-Anosov pure surface braids and provide upper and lower bounds as a function of genus and the number of punctures. For a fixed number of punctures, these bounds tend to infinity as the genus does. We also bound the dilatation of pseudo-Anosov pure surface braids away from zero and give a constant upper bound in the case of a sufficient number of punctures.
