Families of short cycles on Riemannian surfaces

Yevgeny Liokumovich Volume 165, Number 7 (2016)

Let $M$ be a closed Riemannian surface of genus $g$. We construct a family of 1-cycles on $M$ that represents a nontrivial element of the $k$th homology group of the space of cycles and such that the mass of each cycle is bounded above by $C \max\{\sqrt{k}, \sqrt{g}\} \sqrt{\mathrm{Area}(M)}$. This result is optimal up to a multiplicative constant.
