Uniformly perfect domains and convex hulls: Improved bounds in a generalization of a theorem of Sullivan
Pages: 49 – 71
Given a hyperbolic domain $\Omega$, the nearest point retraction is a conformally natural homotopy equivalence from $\Omega$ to the boundary Dome($\Omega$) of the convex core of its complement. Marden and Markovic showed that if $\Omega$ is uniformly perfect, then there exists a conformally natural quasiconformal map from $\Omega$ to Dome($\Omega$) which admits a bounded homotopy to the nearest point retraction. We obtain an explicit upper bound on the quasiconformal dilatation which depends only on the injectivity radius of the domain.
