A characterization of Fuchsian groups acting on complex hyperbolic spaces

Xi Fu, Liulan Li, Xiantao Wang (2012)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

Let G 𝐒𝐔 ( 2 , 1 ) be a non-elementary complex hyperbolic Kleinian group. If G preserves a complex line, then G is -Fuchsian; if G preserves a Lagrangian plane, then G is -Fuchsian; G is Fuchsian if G is either -Fuchsian or -Fuchsian. In this paper, we prove that if the traces of all elements in G are real, then G is Fuchsian. This is an analogous result of Theorem V.G. 18 of B. Maskit, Kleinian Groups, Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1988, in the setting of complex hyperbolic isometric groups. As an application...

A holomorphic correspondence at the boundary of the Klein combination locus

Shaun Bullett, Andrew Curtis (2012)

Annales de la faculté des sciences de Toulouse Mathématiques

We investigate an explicit holomorphic correspondence on the Riemann sphere with striking dynamical behaviour: the limit set is a fractal resembling the one-skeleton of a tetrahedron and on each component of the complement of this set the correspondence behaves like a Fuchsian group.

A pseudo-trigonometry related to Ptolemy's theorem and the hyperbolic geometry of punctured spheres

Joachim A. Hempel (2004)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

A hyperbolic geodesic joining two punctures on a Riemann surface has infinite length. To obtain a useful distance-like quantity we define a finite pseudo-length of such a geodesic in terms of the hyperbolic length of its surrounding geodesic loop. There is a well defined angle between two geodesics meeting at a puncture, and our pseudo-trigonometry connects these angles with pseudo-lengths. We state and prove a theorem resembling Ptolemy's classical theorem on cyclic quadrilaterals and three general...
