Abstract/Media

We'll discuss how the SL(2, R)-action on spaces of holomorphic differentials (or meromorphic quadratic differentials with at most simple poles) helps give quadratic asymptotics for counting saddle connections. Toward the end, if time permits, we'll discuss some recent work with Cheung and Masur showing that the number of saddle connections of length at most 1, viewed as a function on moduli space, is in L^2 of the Masur-Veech measure.
