# Boundary slopes for the Markov ordering on relatively prime pairs

@inproceedings{Gaster2021BoundarySF, title={Boundary slopes for the Markov ordering on relatively prime pairs}, author={Jonah Gaster}, year={2021} }

Following McShane, we employ the stable norm on the homology of the modular torus to investigate the Markov ordering on the set of relatively prime integer pairs (q, p) with q ≥ p ≥ 0. Our main theorem is a characterization of slopes along which the Markov ordering is monotone with respect to q, confirming conjectures of Lee-Li-Rabideau-Schiffler that refine conjectures of Aigner. The main tool is an explicit computation of the slopes at the corners of the stable norm ball for the modular torus… Expand

This paper generalizes Markov numbers to any couple (p,q) of nonnegative integers (not only when they are relatively primes) and conjecture that the unicity is still true as soon as $p \leq q$. Expand
