A proof of two conjectures on Markov Numbers

A Markov number is a positive integer that is part of a solution $(x,y,z)$, called a Markov triple, to the Markov Diophatine equation $x^2+y^2+z^2=3xyz$. These numbers are related to combinatorics, hyperbolic geometry, approximation theory, and cluster algebras. In Aigner's book "Markov's theorem and 100 years of the uniqueness conjecture'', there are three conjectures asserting an orderings on various subsets of the Markov numbers, namely the constant numerator conjecture, constant denominator conjecture, and constant sum conjecture. The first conjecture was proved in a recent paper by M. Rabideau and R. Schiffler. In this talk, I will explain these three conjectures and present a proof using Ptolemy relations in hyperbolic geometry. This is a joint work with K. Lee, M. Rabideau and R. Schiffler.
