Minimum expansion factors of orientation-reversing pseudo-Anosov maps.

RESUMEN: Pseudo-Anosov maps are prevalent among mapping classes of surfaces. Given a pA map, the expansion factor measures the complexity of its dynamics. It is a classical result that the set of expansion factors (viewed as a subset of the set of real numbers) among all pA maps defined on a fixed surface has a minimum element. This minimum expansion factor can be thought of as the systole of the moduli space for the Teichmüller metric. Its value is not known for the genus larger than three.
