Hyperbolic lengths of geodesics surrounding two punctures
Abstract: For the plane regions with , and with , we describe, as , the hyperbolic lengths of the geodesies surrounding 0 and 1. Upper and lower bounds for the lengths are also stated, and these results are used to obtain inequalities, which are precise in a certain sense, for the length of the geodesic surrounding 0 and 1 in an arbitrary plane region satisfying .
