An arc graph distance formula for the flip graph

Funda Gültepe, Christopher J. Leininger

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using existing technology, we prove a Masur-Minsky style distance formula for flip-graph distance between two triangulations, expressed as a sum of the distances of the projections of these triangulations into arc graphs of the suitable subsurfaces of S.
