    Deformation of finite-volume hyperbolic Coxeter polyhedra, limiting growth rates and Pisot numbers

    Get PDF
    A connection between real poles of the growth functions for Coxeter groups acting on hyperbolic space of dimensions three and greater and algebraic integers is investigated. In particular, a geometric convergence of fundamental domains for cocompact hyperbolic Coxeter groups with finite-volume limiting polyhedron provides a relation between Salem numbers and Pisot numbers. Several examples conclude this work.Comment: 26 pages, 16 figures, 4 data tables; minor corrections; European Journal of Combinatorics, 201

    Volume of a doubly truncated hyperbolic tetrahedron

    Get PDF
    The present paper regards the volume function of a doubly truncated hyperbolic tetrahedron. Starting from the previous results of J. Murakami, U. Yano and A. Ushijima, we have developed a unified approach to express the volume in different geometric cases via dilogarithm functions and to treat properly the many analytic strata of the latter. Finally, several numeric examples are given.Comment: Several misprints in the proof of Theorem 1 correcte

    Counting cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds that bound geometrically

    Get PDF
    We show that the number of isometry classes of cusped hyperbolic 33-manifolds that bound geometrically grows at least super-exponentially with their volume, both in the arithmetic and non-arithmetic settings.Comment: 17 pages, 7 figures; to appear in Transactions AM

    Free subgroups of free products and combinatorial hypermaps

    Full text link
    We derive a generating series for the number of free subgroups of finite index in Δ+=Zp∗Zq\Delta^+ = \mathbb{Z}_p*\mathbb{Z}_q by using a connection between free subgroups of Δ+\Delta^+ and certain hypermaps (also known as ribbon graphs or "fat" graphs), and show that this generating series is transcendental. We provide non-linear recurrence relations for the above numbers based on differential equations that are part of the Riccati hierarchy. We also study the generating series for conjugacy classes of free subgroups of finite index in Δ+\Delta^+, which correspond to isomorphism classes of hypermaps. Asymptotic formulas are provided for the numbers of free subgroups of given finite index, conjugacy classes of such subgroups, or, equivalently, various types of hypermaps and their isomorphism classes.Comment: 27 pages, 3 figures; supplementary SAGE worksheets available at http://sashakolpakov.wordpress.com/list-of-papers

    Hyperbolic four-manifolds, colourings and mutations

    Full text link
    We develop a way of seeing a complete orientable hyperbolic 44-manifold M\mathcal{M} as an orbifold cover of a Coxeter polytope P⊂H4\mathcal{P} \subset \mathbb{H}^4 that has a facet colouring. We also develop a way of finding totally geodesic sub-manifolds N\mathcal{N} in M\mathcal{M}, and describing the result of mutations along N\mathcal{N}. As an application of our method, we construct an example of a complete orientable hyperbolic 44-manifold X\mathcal{X} with a single non-toric cusp and a complete orientable hyperbolic 44-manifold Y\mathcal{Y} with a single toric cusp. Both X\mathcal{X} and Y\mathcal{Y} have twice the minimal volume among all complete orientable hyperbolic 44-manifolds.Comment: 24 pages, 11 figures; to appear in Proceedings of the London Mathematical Societ
