Convex regions in the plane and their domes

By D. B. A. Epstein, A. Marden and V. (Vladimir) Markovic


We make a detailed study of the relation of a euclidean convex region $\Omega \subset \mathbb C$ to $\mathrm{Dome} (\Omega)$. The dome is the relative boundary, in the upper halfspace model of hyperbolic space, of the hyperbolic convex hull of the complement of $\Omega$. The first result is to prove that the nearest point retraction $r: \Omega \to \mathrm{Dome} (\Omega)$ is 2-quasiconformal. The second is to establish precise estimates of the distortion of $r$ near $\partial \Omega$
