About the Authors
  • Over the past three decades there has been a total revolution in the classic branch of mathematics called 3-dimensional topology, namely the discovery that most solid 3-dimensional shapes are hyperbolic 3-manifolds. This book introduces and explains hyperbolic geometry and hyperbolic 3- and 2-dimensional manifolds in the first two chapters and then goes on to develop the subject. The author discusses the profound discoveries of the astonishing features of these 3-manifolds, helping the reader to understand them without going into long, detailed formal proofs. The book is heavily illustrated with pictures, mostly in color, that help explain the manifold properties described in the text. Each chapter ends with a set of exercises and explorations that both challenge the reader to prove assertions made in the text, and suggest further topics to explore that bring additional insight. There is an extensive index and bibliography.

    • An up-to-date introduction written by a leading figure in the theory of hyperbolic 3-manifolds
    • Accessible to those with minimal formal background in topology, hyperbolic geometry, and complex analysis
    • A valuable reference source with an extensive bibliography

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The diagrams, over 60 in number and for the most part highly intricate computer-generated graphics, will leave the reader craving for more.' Tushar Das, MAA Reviews

    'With its plenitude of exercises, both closed- and open-ended, and its extensive index and bibliography, this book merits what a reviewer wrote of the first edition: its 'topic's central importance and the author's singular viewpoint earn this book a place in all academic libraries.' Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals.' F. E. J. Linton, CHOICE

    '… the book provides an excellent overview of the developments of recent decades in the theory of hyperbolic 3-manifolds.' Thilo Kuessner, Mathematical Reviews
