Abstract:This dissertation is concerned with geometric and combinatoric problems of curves on surfaces. In Chapter 3, we show that certain families of iso-length spectral hyperbolic surfaces obtained via the Sunada construction are not generally simple iso-length spectral. In Chapter 4, We prove a strong form of finite rigidity for pants graphs of spheres. Specifically, for any n ≥ 5 we construct a finite subgraph Xn of the pants graph P(S0,n) of the n-punctures sphere S0,n with the following property. Any simplicial embedding of Xn into any pants graph P(S0,m) of a punctured sphere is induced by an embedding S0,n → S0,m.
