Totally geodesic subvarieties in the moduli space of Riemann surfaces Mukamel, Ronen
We will present an algebraic surface in the moduli space of triply punctured tori with the remarkable property that it is totally geodesic for Teichmuller metric. Our example reveals a surprising connection between Teichmuller theory and the geometry of cubic curves and is the first of its kind not arising from a covering construction. This is joint work with C. McMullen and A. Wright.
