We live in a three-dimensional space; what sort of space is it? Can we build it from simple geometric objects? The answers to such questions have been found in the last 30 years, and Outer Circles describes the basic mathematics needed for those answers as well as making clear the grand design of the subject of hyperbolic manifolds as a whole. The purpose of Outer Circles is to provide an account of the contemporary theory, accessible to those with minimal formal background in topology, hyperbolic geometry, and complex analysis. The text explains what is needed, and provides the expertise to use the primary tools to arrive at a thorough understanding of the big picture. This picture is further filled out by numerous exercises and expositions at the ends of the chapters and is complemented by a profusion of high quality illustrations. There is an extensive bibliography for further study.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"Marden achieves great compression without sacrificing clarity... The topic's central importance and the author's singular viewpoint earn this book a place in all academic libraries."
D.V. Feldman, University of New Hampshire for CHOICESee more reviews
"The book contains a lot of information in a rather condensed form; it is stimulating to read, and most useful to get an orientation in the field and its literature as well as to learn about the basic concepts and constructions. The present book has the merit of being the first one which tells the whole story, both of Kleinian groups and hyperbolic 3-manifolds."
