Title:  Elastic graphs and Ahlfors regular conformal dimension

Abstract:   One measure of the complexity of a Julia set is its fractal Hausdorff dimension, or more generally various notions of "conformal dimension". We show how to estimate the Ahlfors regular conformal dimension of Julia sets from above and below by using certain energies of maps between graphs. This extends an earlier characterization of which topological maps from a sphere to itself are realized by a rational map.
