One of the most important theorems in 3-manifolds topology is Agol’s Theorem asserting that every closed 3-manifold is virtually fibered and in particular virtually Haken. Agol proved this theorem in early 2012 for closed hyperbolic manifolds. The general (closed) case reduces to hyperbolic manifolds via geometrization. The case of cusped hyperbolic manifolds was left open … Continue reading "What’s new on the ArXiv: Quasiconvexity and Dehn filling"
Spiegel Online reports today (Escher in 3D) on work of Alexander Gürten from the contest Math Creations. It is about bulls tesselating Euclidean space. Have a look at the linked video:

The New York Times has an article about the untimely death of Marina Ratner and Maryam Mirzakhani: With Snowflakes and Unicorns, Marina Ratner and Maryam Mirzakhani Explored a Universe in Motion
In this series we will introduce and discuss new preprints that are somehow related to the topics of the programme “Geometry at Infinity”. By incidence, this first article fits not only the topic, but also the title of this blog: the boundary at infinity. Charney, Murray: A rank-one CAT(0) group is determined by its Morse … Continue reading "What’s new on the ArXiv: A rank-one CAT(0) group is determined by its Morse boundary"
Some impressions from the conference “Curvature and global shape” that took place July 24-28 in Münster.
This blog will eventually be integrated into the website of the DFG priority programme “Geometry at Infinity“. It will discuss all kind of things that might be of potential interest to the users of that website. If you’d like to contribute some shorter or longer article, just send it unformatted or formatted to the e-mail … Continue reading "First blog post"
