Homological eigenvalues of lifts of pseudo-Anosov mapping classes to finite covers

Asaf Hadari

Geometry & Topology 24 (2020) 1717–1750
Abstract

Let Σ be a compact orientable surface of finite type with at least one boundary component. Let f Mod(Σ) be a pseudo-Anosov mapping class. We prove a conjecture of McMullen by showing that there exists a finite cover Σ̃ Σ and a lift f̃ of f such that f̃: H1(Σ̃, ) H1(Σ̃, ) has an eigenvalue off the unit circle.
