Abstract: A brief exposition of the Teichmüller and earthquake theory is given for the once punctured torus. Using these ideas, computer plots, of the tessellation of Teichmüller space by the mapping class group and of the earthquake paths leaving a point, were generated. The algorithms for generating the plots are discussed.
