The authors boost a concept of axis within the Culler-Vogtmann outer house $\mathcal{X}_r$ of a finite rank unfastened staff $F_r$, with admire to the motion of a nongeometric, totally irreducible outer automorphism $\phi$. not like the location of a loxodromic isometry performing on hyperbolic area, or a pseudo-Anosov mapping classification performing on Teichmuller house, $\mathcal{X}_r$ has no typical metric, and $\phi$ turns out to not have a unmarried typical axis. as a substitute those axes for $\phi$, whereas no longer designated, healthy into an ""axis bundle"" $\mathcal{A}_\phi$ with great topological houses: $\mathcal{A}_\phi$ is a closed subset of $\mathcal{X}_r$ right homotopy comparable to a line, it's invariant less than $\phi$, the 2 ends of $\mathcal{A}_\phi$ restrict at the repeller and attractor of the source-sink motion of $\phi$ on compactified outer area, and $\mathcal{A}_\phi$ relies obviously at the repeller and attractor.

The authors suggest quite a few definitions for $\mathcal{A}_\phi$, every one encouraged in numerous methods by means of teach tune thought or by means of homes of axes in Teichmuller area, they usually turn out their equivalence.

For each nongeometric, fully irreducible φ ∈ Out(Fr ) and each nontrivial subgroup A < Fr of inﬁnite index, the following hold: (1) The action of A on T+φ is discrete. (2) The translation lengths of nontrivial elements of A acting on T+φ have a positive lower bound. 6. Geodesic laminations in trees and marked graphs. Given a topological space S let D2 S denote the double space of S, the space of distinct ordered 34 MICHAEL HANDEL AND LEE MOSHER pairs in S: D2 S = {(ξ, η) ∈ S × S ξ = η} The group Z/2 acts freely on D2 S by permuting coordinates.

When s > 0 we say that Gs is obtained from G by a length s fold of e and e , and the quotient map G → Gs is called a fold map from G to Gs . Consider the map γ : [0, S] → Xr deﬁned by γ(s) = Gs . First, γ is a continuous path in Xr from G to GS , and so it descends to a continuous path γ : [0, S] → Xr which, its domain being compact, is proper. Second, for 0 ≤ s ≤ t ≤ S the induced map fts : Gs → Gt is a fold map. Third, the family of maps fts satisﬁes the train track property and the semiﬂow property, by construction.

The direct limit of the direct system gij : Gj → Gi , in the category of metric spaces with an Fr action whose morphisms are Fr equivariant, distance nonincreasing maps, is an Fr tree in the same homothety class as T+ .
