This book gives a complete proof of the geometrization conjecture, which describes all compact 3-manifolds in terms of geometric pieces, i.e. Thurston’s Geometrization Conjecture (now, a theorem of Perelman) aims to answer the question: How could you describe possible shapes of our universe?.

geometrization conjecture in nLab
Moreover if the volume does not have to be finite there are an infinite number of new geometric structures with no compact models; for example, the geometry of almost any non-unimodular 3-dimensional Lie group. The group G has 2 components, and is a semidirect product of the 3-dimensional Heisenberg group by the group O 2, R of isometries of a circle.

The main difficulty in verifying Perelman’s proof of the geometrization conjecture was a critical use of his Theorem 7.
Bill Thurston 22 August, in math. First, there is the connected sum decompositionwhich says that every compact three- manifold is the connected sum of a unique collection of prime three- manifolds. Pacific Journal of Mathematics. For non-oriented manifolds the easiest way geometrisation state a geometrization conjecture is to first take the oriented double cover.
Examples are the 3-torusand more generally the mapping torus of a finite order automorphism of the 2-torus; see torus bundle. This fibers over E 2and is the geometry of the Heisenberg group. Ben Eastaugh and Chris Sternal-Johnson. There are enormous numbers of examples of these, and their classification is not completely understood.
He later developed a program to prove the geometrization conjecture by Ricci flow with surgery.
The first half of the book is devoted to showing that these limits divide naturally along incompressible tori into pieces on which the metric is converging smoothly conjectjre hyperbolic metrics and pieces that are locally more and more volume collapsed. This page was last edited on 14 Julyat By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use.
 Completion of the Proof of the Geometrization Conjecture
This is established by showing that the Gromov-Hausdorff limits of sequences of more and more locally volume collapsed 3-manifolds are Alexandrov spaces of dimension at most 2 and then classifying these Alexandrov spaces. The geometry of. There is a preprint at https: Manifolds with this geometry are all compact, orientable, and have the structure of a Seifert fiber space often in several ways.
Thurston’s Geometrization Conjecture
The point stabilizer is the dihedral group of order 8. For example, the mapping torus of an Anosov map of a torus has a finite volume solv structure, but its JSJ decomposition cuts it open along one torus to produce a product of a torus and a unit interval, and the interior of this has no finite volume geometric structure.
In addition, a complete picture of the local structure of Alexandrov surfaces is developed. Other examples are given by the Seifert—Weber spaceor “sufficiently complicated” Dehn surgeries geometrziation links, or most Haken manifolds.
Grigori Perelman sketched a proof of the full geometrization conjecture in using Ricci flow with surgery.
Geometric topology Riemannian geometry 3-manifolds Conjectures. This book gives a complete proof of the geometrization conjecture, which describes all compact 3-manifolds in terms of geometric pieces, i. Hints help you try the next step on your own. Spherical geometry cohjecture, 4. In three dimensions, it is not always possible to assign a single geometry to a whole topological space.
It is also geomefrization to geometrisation directly with non-orientable manifolds, but this gives some extra complications: The geometry of6. D3, April 15, Also containing proofs of Perelman’s Theorem 7. The Fields Medal was awarded to Thurston in partially for his proof of the geometrization conjecture for Haken manifolds.
Here, is the 2- sphere in a topologist’s sense and is the hyperbolic plane. This is established by showing that the Gromov-Hausdorff limits of sequences of more and more locally volume collapsed 3-manifolds are Alexandrov spaces of dimension at most 2 and then classifying these Alexandrov spaces.
The geometrization conjecture implies that a closed 3-manifold is hyperbolic if and only if it is irreducible, atoroidaland has infinite fundamental group. There are now several different manuscripts see below with details conecture the proof.
The complete list of such manifolds is given in the article on Spherical 3-manifolds. The geometry of the universal cover of the Lie group7. Otal, ‘Thurston’s hyperbolization of Haken manifolds,’Surveys in differential geometry, Vol. Then M is homeomorphic to a 3-sphere.
Examples include the product of a hyperbolic surface with comjecture circle, or more generally the mapping torus of an isometry of a hyperbolic surface.
This geometry fibers over the line with fiber the plane, and is the geometry of the identity component of the group G. Under normalized Ricci flow manifolds with this geometry converge to a 1-dimensional manifold. Problem solving strategies About The Euler-Maclaurin formula, Bernoulli numbers, the zeta function, and real-variable analytic continuation Books On writing.
If they are not orientable the natural fibration by circles is not necessarily a Seifert fibration: In addition to his direct mathematical research contributions, Thurston was also an amazing mathematical expositor, having the rare knack of being able to describe the process of mathematical thinking in addition to the results of that process and the intuition underlying it.
