This paper describes the complete list of all 205,822 exceptional Dehn fillings on the 1-cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds that have ideal triangulations with at most 9 ideal tetrahedra. The data is consistent with the standard conjectures about Dehn filling and suggests some new ones.

Floer homology, group orderability, and taut foliations of hyperbolic 3–manifolds
This paper explores the conjecture that the following are equivalent for rational homology 3-spheres: having left-orderable fundamental group, having non-minimal Heegaard Floer homology, andExpand
Constrained knots in lens spaces
This paper studies a special family of (1,1) knots called constrained knots, which includes 2-bridge knots and simple knots. They are parameterized by five parameters and characterized by theExpand
Asymmetric L-space knots by experiment
Dunfield found 9 manifolds in the SnapPy census that are both asymmetric and complements of L-space knots in $S^3$. Using SnapPy and KLO we find presentations of these knots as closures of positiveExpand

In this paper, we study a special family of p1, 1q knots called constrained knots, which includes 2-bridge knots in the 3-sphere S and simple knots in lens spaces. Constrained knots are parameterizedExpand
Dehn surgery on the minimally twisted seven-chain link.
We classify all the exceptional Dehn surgeries on the minimally twisted chain links with six and seven components.
Distinguished waves and slopes in genus two
If R is a nonseparating simple closed curve on the boundary of a genus two handlebody H and H[R] has incompressible boundary, then there exists a unique arc omega in bdry(H), meeting R only in itsExpand
Instanton Floer homology of almost-rational plumbings
We show that if $Y$ is the boundary of an almost-rational plumbing, then the framed instanton Floer homology $\smash{I^\#(Y)}$ is isomorphic to the Heegaard Floer homologyExpand
M-theoretic genesis of topological phases

A Menagerie of SU(2)-Cyclic 3-Manifolds
We classify $SU(2)$-cyclic and $SU(2)$-abelian 3-manifolds, for which every representation of the fundamental group into $SU(2)$ has cyclic or abelian image respectively, among geometric 3-manifoldsExpand


Small surfaces and Dehn filling
We give a summary of known results on the maximal distances between Dehn fillings on a hyperbolic 3–manifold that yield 3–manifolds containing a surface of non-negative Euler characteristic that isExpand
A census of cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds
The census contains descriptions of all hyperbolic 3-manifolds obtained by gluing the faces of at most seven ideal tetrahedra and various geometric and topological invariants are calculated for these manifolds. Expand
A Computer Generated Census of Cusped Hyperbolic 3-Manifolds
This paper describes how a computer was used to produce a census of cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds obtained from 5 or fewer ideal tetrahedra and gives a brief summary of the results. Expand
Reducible and toroidal 3-manifolds obtained by Dehn fillings
Abstract Let M be a compact, connected, orientable, irreducible 3-manifold whose boundary is a torus. We announce that if two Dehn fillings create reducible manifold and toroidal manifold, then theExpand

Abstract If two surgeries on a hyperbolic knot produce a reducible manifold and a toroidal manifold, respectively, then the distance between the surgery slopes is at most three.

Verified Computations for Hyperbolic 3-Manifolds
Central to the method is an implementation of interval arithmetic and Krawczyk's test that represents an improvement over existing algorithms as they are faster while accounting for error accumulation in a more direct and user-friendly way. Expand
