Zero Lyapunov exponents and monodromy of the Kontsevich–Zorich cocycle

Simion Filip Volume 166, Number 4 (2017)
Abstract

We describe all the situations in which the Kontsevich–Zorich (KZ) cocycle has zero Lyapunov exponents. Confirming a conjecture of Forni, Matheus, and Zorich, we find this only occurs when the cocycle satisfies additional geometric constraints. We also show that the connected components of the Zariski closure of the monodromy must be from a specific list, and the representations in which they can occur are described. The number of zero exponents of the KZ cocycle is then as small as possible, given its monodromy.
