Low-dimensional Geometry: From Euclidean Surfaces to Hyperbolic Knots

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Institute for Advanced Study, c Related resource Table of contents only at http: This includes the tessellations associated to the process of gluing together the sides of a polygon. The euclidean plane The hyperbolic plane The 2-dimensional sphere Gluing constructions Gluing examples Tessellations Group actions and fundamental domains The Farey tessellation and circle packing The 3-dimensional hyperbolic space Kleinian groups The figure-eight knot complement Geometrization theorems in dimension 3.

Low-Dimensional Geometry starts at a relatively elementary level, and its early chapters can be used as a brief introduction to hyperbolic geometry.

The hyperbolic plane Ch. Thanks for telling us about the problem. This book is illustrated with many pictures, as the author intended to share his own enthusiasm for the beauty of some of the mathematical objects involved. Bending some of these tessellations provides a natural introduction to 3-dimensional hyperbolic geometry and to the theory of kleinian groups, and it eventually leads to a discussion of the geometrization theorems for knot complements and 3-dimensional manifolds.
