Discreteness Locus

This section is based on the joint work with Y. Komori, T. Sugawa and M. Wada. The following pictures are slices of the parameter space of once-punctured torus groups.

1. Bers slice

1-1. Base point = hexagonal torus.

1-2. Base point = square torus.

Convex hull boundary (pleated surface)

I am impressed by the nice picture of Figure 12.6 in "Indra's Pearls". (The picture was produced by Yair Minsky. See his limit set pictures.) I wanted to draw these nice pictures. Here are some of the pictures I produced.
