Abstract/Media

First I will explain how to use the hyperbolicity of the Teichmuller geodesic flow to show that a translation surface with sufficiently transcendental coordinates must have dense GL(2,R) orbit. Then I will explain how to use recurrence properties for the Teichmuller horocycle flow to show that certain "cylinder deformations" of a translation surface remain in the GL(2,R) orbit closure.
