Cops chasing a robber on hyperbolic spaces

This paper studies a pursuit-evasion game called Cops and Robbers played on hyperbolic surfaces and manifolds. It shows that only two cops are needed to get arbitrarily close to the robber on these spaces, regardless of topological complexity. The paper generalizes techniques from graphs and geodesic metric spaces to these hyperbolic settings.
