We prove 3-dimensional hyperbolic cone-manifolds are geometrically inflexible: a cone-deformation of a hyperbolic cone-manifold determines a bi-Lipschitz diffeomorphism between initial and terminal manifolds in the deformation in the complement of a standard tubular neighborhood of the cone-locus whose pointwise bi-Lipschitz constant decays exponentially in the distance from the cone-singularity. Estimates at points in the thin part are controlled by similar estimates on the complex lengths of…

We show that Cannon–Thurston maps exist for degenerate free groups without parabolics, that is, for handlebody groups. Combining these techniques with earlier work proving the existence of

Deformations of hyperbolic 3-cone-manifolds
We show that any compact orientable hyperbolic 3-cone-manifold with cone angle at most \pi can be continuously deformed to a complete hyperbolic manifold homeomorphic to the complement of the
Geometric inflexibility and 3‐manifolds that fiber over the circle
We prove that hyperbolic 3‐manifolds are geometrically inflexible: a unit quasiconformal deformation of a Kleinian group extends to an equivariant bi‐Lipschitz diffeomorphism between quotients whose
Hyperbolic cone-manifolds, short geodesics, and Schwarzian derivatives
Given a geometrically finite hyperbolic cone-manifold, with the cone-singularity sufficiently short, we construct a one-parameter family of cone-manifolds decreasing the cone-angle to zero. We also
Universal bounds for hyperbolic Dehn surgery
This paper gives a quantitative version of Thurston?s hyperbolic Dehn surgery theorem. Applications include the first universal bounds on the number of nonhyperbolic Dehn fillings on a cusped
Renormalization and 3-Manifolds Which Fiber over the Circle
Many parallels between complex dynamics and hyperbolic geometry have emerged in the past decade. Building on work of Sullivan and Thurston, this book gives a unified treatment of the construction of
Rigidity of hyperbolic cone-manifolds and hyperbolic Dehn surgery
The local rigidity theorem of WeiI [28] and Garland [12] for complete, finite volume hyperbolic manifolds states that there is no non-trivial deformation of such a structure through complete
Spaces of Kleinian Groups: Drilling short geodesics in hyperbolic 3-manifolds
We give an expository account of the deformation theory of geometrically nite, 3-dimensional hyperbolic cone-manifolds and its application to three classical conjectures about Kleinian groups.
Drilling long geodesics in hyperbolic 3-manifolds
Given a complete hyperbolic 3-manifold one often wants to compare the original metric to a complete hyperbolic metric on the complement of some simple closed geodesic in the manifold. In some cases
The shape of hyperbolic Dehn surgery space
In this paper we develop a new theory of infinitesimal harmonic deformations for compact hyperbolic 3-manifolds with ``tubular boundary''. In particular, this applies to complements of tubes of
On the density of geometrically finite Kleinian groups
The density conjecture of Bers, Sullivan and Thurston predicts that each complete hyperbolic 3-manifold M with finitely generated fundamental group is an algebraic limit of geometrically finite
