Title:Rank of the fundamental group and geometry of hyperbolic 3-manifolds.
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Juan Souto (U Michigan)
Abstract:
We explain some aspects of the relation between the geometry and topology of hyperbolic 3-manifolds and the rank of their fundamental group, i.e. the minimal number of elements needed to generate it. For instance we show that for every $k$ there are only finitely many conmensurability classes of non-compact arithmetic hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose fundamental group has rank $k$. This is a joint work with Ian Biringer.
