Counting Pairs of Saddle Connections

Counting Pairs of Saddle Connections Abstract: A translation surface is a collection of polygons in the plane with parallel sides identified by translation to form a Riemann surface with a singular Euclidean structure. A saddle connection is a special type of geodesic, and the set of saddle connections form discrete subsets of the Euclidean plane. Studying the set of saddle connections is a long standing problem in the field of translation surfaces. I will discuss problems and results related to counting pairs of saddle connections. This talk will include some computer experiments, number theory, dynamics, and geometry. No previous knowledge of translation surfaces or counting problems is necessary.
