Abstract:This dissertation is concerned with equivalence relations on homotopy classes of curves coming from various spaces of at metrics on a genus g >1 surface. We prove an analog of a result of Randol (building on work of Horowitz) for subfamilies of at metrics coming from q-di erentials. In addition we also describe how these equivalence relations are related to each other.
