The Volume of complete anti-de Sitter 3-manifolds

Up to a finite cover, closed anti-de Sitter $3$-manifolds are quotients of $\mathrm{SO}_0(2,1)$ by a discrete subgroup of $\mathrm{SO}_0(2,1) \times \mathrm{SO}_0(2,1)$ of the form \[j\times

On deformation spaces of nonuniform hyperbolic lattices

Abstract Let Γ be a nonuniform lattice acting on the real hyperbolic n-space. We show that in dimension greater than or equal to 4, the volume of a representation is constant on each connected

A note on the integrality of volumes of representations

Let Γ be a torsion-free, non-uniform lattice in SO ( 2 n, 1 ) . We present an elementary, combinatorial–geometrical proof of a theorem of Bucher, Burger, and Iozzi in [BBI21] which states that the



Bounded differential forms, generalized Milnor–Wood inequality and an application to deformation rigidity

We establish sufficient conditions for a cohomology class of a discrete subgroup Γ of a connected semisimple Lie group with finite center to be representable by a bounded differential form on the

A Dual Interpretation of the Gromov–Thurston Proof of Mostow Rigidity and Volume Rigidity for Representations of Hyperbolic Lattices

We use bounded cohomology to define a notion of volume of an \(\operatorname{SO}(n,1)\)-valued representation of a lattice \(\varGamma<\operatorname{SO}(n,1)\) and, using this tool, we give a

Maximal Volume Representations are Fuchsian

AbstractWe prove a volume-rigidity theorem for Fuchsian representations of fundamental groups of hyperbolic k-manifolds into Isom $$\mathbb{H}^n$$. Namely, we show that if M is a complete hyperbolic

Hyperbolic volume of representations of fundamental groups of cusped 3-manifolds

Let W be a compact manifold and let ρ be a representation of its fundamental group into PSL(2, C). Then the volume of ρ is defined by taking any ρ-equivariant map from the universal cover W~ to ℍ 3

Inégalités de Milnor-Wood géométriques

EnglishWe prove a generalisation of the celebrated Milnor?Wood inequality. If Y is a closed Riemannian manifold, we consider a representation of its fundamental group into the isometry group of a

Characteristic classes and representations of discrete subgroups of Lie groups

A volume invariant is used to characterize those representations of a countable group into a connected semisimple Lie group G which are injective and whose image is a discrete cocompact subgroup of

The norm of the Euler class

We prove that the norm of the Euler class $${\mathcal {E}}$$ for flat vector bundles is 2−n (in even dimension n, since it vanishes in odd dimension). This shows that the Sullivan–Smillie bound

Cyclic surgery, degrees of maps of character curves, and volume rigidity for hyperbolic manifolds

This paper proves a theorem about Dehn surgery using a new theorem about PSL2C character varieties. Confirming a conjecture of Boyer and Zhang, this p aper shows that a small hyperbolic knot in a

Rationality of secondary classes

We prove the Bloch conjecture : $ c_2(E) \in H^4_\cald (X,\bbz(2))$ is torsion for holomorphic rank two vector bundles $E$ with an integrable connection over a complex projective variety $X$. We
