Loxodromics for the cyclic splitting complex and their centralizers

Radhika Gupta and Derrick Wigglesworth

Vol. 301 (2019), No. 1, 107–142

We show that an outer automorphism acts loxodromically on the cyclic splitting complex if and only if it has a filling lamination and no generic leaf of the lamination is carried by a vertex group of a cyclic splitting. This is the analog for the cyclic splitting complex of Handel–Mosher’s theorem on loxodromics for the free splitting complex. We also show that such outer automorphisms have virtually cyclic centralizers.
