Accidental parabolics in the mapping class group

Christopher J. Leininger

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we discuss the behavior of the Gromov boundaries and limit sets for the surface subgroups of the mapping class group with accidental parabolics constructed by the author and A. Reid (2006). Specifically, we show that generically there are no Cannon-Thurston maps from the Gromov boundary to Thurston's boundary of Teichmüller space.
