Uniform distribution of saddle connection lengths (with an appendix by Daniel El-Baz and Bingrong Huang)

Department of Mathematics, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA

Received  August 2018 Revised  May 13, 2019 Published  December 2019

For any $ \mathrm{SL}(2, \mathbb{R}) $ invariant and ergodic probability measure on any stratum of flat surfaces, almost every flat surface has the property that its non-decreasing sequence of saddle connection lengths is uniformly distributed mod one.
