Hyperbolic extensions of free groups from atoroidal ping-pong

Caglar Uyanik

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 1385–1411
Abstract

We prove that all atoroidal automorphisms of Out(FN) act on the space of projectivized geodesic currents with generalized north–south dynamics. As an application, we produce new examples of nonvirtually cyclic, free and purely atoroidal subgroups of Out(FN) such that the corresponding free group extension is hyperbolic. Moreover, these subgroups are not necessarily convex cocompact.
