These Thurston maps are NET maps for every choice of translation term. They are primitive and have degree 8. PURE MODULAR GROUP HURWITZ EQUIVALENCE CLASSES FOR TRANSLATIONS {0} {lambda1} {lambda2} {lambda1+lambda2} Since no Thurston multiplier is 1, this modular group Hurwitz class contains only finitely many Thurston equivalence classes. The number of pure modular group Hurwitz classes in this modular group Hurwitz class is 12. ALL THURSTON MULTIPLIERS c/d IN UNREDUCED FORM 0/2, 0/4, 0/8, 2/1 EXCLUDED INTERVALS FOR THE HALF-SPACE COMPUTATION (-infinity,0.987690) ( 1.012099,infinity) The half-space computation does not determine rationality. EXCLUDED INTERVALS FOR JUST THE SUPPLEMENTAL HALF-SPACE COMPUTATION INTERVAL COMPUTED FOR HST OR EXTENDED HST (0.823235,1.214810) 1/1 EXTENDED HST The supplemental half-space computation shows that these NET maps are rational. SLOPE FUNCTION INFORMATION There are no slope function fixed points because every nonzero multiplier is at least 1 and the map is rational. Similarly, there are not even any slope function cycles. The slope function maps some slope to the nonslope. The slope function orbit of every slope p/q with |p| <= 50 and |q| <= 50 ends in the nonslope. If the slope function maps slope p/q to slope p'/q', then |p'| <= |p| for every slope p/q with |p| <= 50 and |q| <= 50. If the slope function maps slope p/q to slope p'/q', then |q'| <= |q| for every slope p/q with |p| <= 50 and |q| <= 50.
