Dominating representations by Fuchsian ones (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We will focus on the problem of dominating the translation lengths of a representation from a surface group to the isometries of a CAT(-1) space by the lengths induced by a hyperbolic structure on the surface. This is related to the construction of 3-dimensional anti-de-Sitter compact manifolds. This is a collaboration with Nicolas Tholozan.
