Abstract: The Weil-Petersson metric is a negatively curved, incomplete
Riemannian metric on the Teichmuller space with connections to hyperbolic
geometry. In this talk we present some results about the behavior of
geodesics of the metric and its relation to subsurface coefficients in
analogy with continued fraction expansions.
