Date: 22 October 1999
We complete the determination of the groups of deficiency >0 which occur as
lattices in connected Lie groups. The torsion free groups among them are
3-manifold groups. We show that any other torsion free 3-manifold group which
is such a lattice is the group of an aspherical closed geometric 3-manifold.
