Veering triangulations and pseudo-Anosov flows

We’ll discuss veering triangulations associated to pseudo-Anosov mapping tori, and how they arise dynamically. We’ll survey some of the results obtained regarding these triangulations. Then we’ll discuss a new construction of these triangulations associated to certain pseudo-Anosov flows, which is joint work with François Guéritaud.
