EXPONENTIAL MIXING FOR THE TEICHM ULLER FLOW ARTUR AVILA, SEBASTIEN GOUEZEL AND JEAN-CHRISTOPHE YOCCOZ
 

Summary: EXPONENTIAL MIXING FOR THE TEICHM ¨ULLER FLOW
ARTUR AVILA, S´EBASTIEN GOU¨EZEL AND JEAN-CHRISTOPHE YOCCOZ
Abstract. We study the dynamics of the Teichm¨uller flow in the moduli space of Abelian differ-
entials (and more generally, its restriction to any connected component of a stratum). We show
that the (Masur-Veech) absolutely continuous invariant probability measure is exponentially mix-
ing for the class of H¨older observables. A geometric consequence is that the SL(2, R) action in the
moduli space has a spectral gap.
