Reidemeister torsion and hyperbolic 3-manifolds

Joan Porti (UAB)

Wednesday 27 April 2016 from 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 535A

Please join us for lunch after the talk!


Abstract: Reidemeister torsion was introduced in 1935, as an invariant that classifies lens spaces. In this talk I plan to discuss first some aspects of its history and then I will focus on its applications to hyperbolic 3-manifolds.
