Let σ(n) be the minimum number of ideal hyperbolic tetrahedra necessary to construct a finite volumen-cusped hyperbolic 3-manifold, orientable or not. Let σor(n) be the corresponding number when we restrict ourselves to orientable manifolds. The correct values of σ(n) and σor(n) and the corresponding manifolds are given forn=1,2,3,4 and 5. We then show that 2n−1≤σ(n)≤σor(n)≤4n−4 forn≥5 and that σor(n)≥2n for alln. 
Cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds of complexity 10 having maximum volume
We give a complete census of orientable cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds obtained by gluing at most ten regular ideal hyperbolic tetrahedra. Although the census is exhaustive, the question of

We classify the topological types for the unions of the totally geodesic 3-punctured spheres in orientable hyperbolic 3-manifolds. General types of the unions appear in various hyperbolic
The complement of the figure-eight knot geometrically bounds
We show that some hyperbolic 3-manifolds which are tessellated by copies of the regular ideal hyperbolic tetrahedron embed geodesically in a complete, finite volume, hyperbolic 4-manifold. This
Symmetries of hyperbolic 4-manifolds
In this paper, for each finite group $G$, we construct explicitly a non-compact complete finite-volume arithmetic hyperbolic $4$-manifold $M$ such that $\mathrm{Isom}\,M \cong G$, or
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.
Dehn Filling of the "Magic" 3-manifold
We classify all the non-hyperbolic Dehn fillings of the complement of the chain-link with 3 components, conjectured to be the smallest hyperbolic 3-manifold with 3 cusps. We deduce the classification
The cusped hyperbolic census is complete
For the first time, it is proved here that the census meets its aim: it is rigorously certify that every ideal 3-manifold triangulation with <= 8 tetrahedra is either homeomorphic to one of the census manifolds, or non-hyperbolic.
A combinatorial curvature flow for ideal triangulations
We investigate a combinatorial analogue of the Ricci curvature flow for 3-dimensional hyperbolic cone structures, obtained by gluing together hyperbolic ideal tetrahedra. Our aim is to find a
A-polynomials, Ptolemy equations and Dehn filling
This work compute A-polynomials by starting with a triangulation of a manifold, then using symplectic properties of the NeumannZagier matrix encoding the gluings to change the basis of the computation, and the result is a simplicifation of the defining equations.

Thrice-punctured spheres in hyperbolic 3-manifolds
The work of W. Thurston has stimulated much interest in the volumes of hyperbolic 3-manifolds. In this paper, it is demonstrated that a 3-manifold M' obtained by cutting open an oriented finite
Hyperbolic invariants of knots and links
Tables of values for the hyperbolic volume, number of symmetries, cusp volume and conformai invariants of the cusps are given for hyperbolic knots through ten crossings and hyperbolic links of 2, 3
Hyperbolic Structures on 3-manifolds, I: Deformation of acylindrical manifolds
This is the first in a series of papers showing that Haken manifolds have hyperbolic structures; this first was published, the second two have existed only in preprint form, and later preprints
Three dimensional manifolds, Kleinian groups and hyperbolic geometry
1. A conjectural picture of 3-manifolds. A major thrust of mathematics in the late 19th century, in which Poincare had a large role, was the uniformization theory for Riemann surfaces: that every
The noncompact hyperbolic 3-manifold of minimal volume
We utilize maximal cusp volumes in order to prove that the Gieseking manifold is the unique complete noncompact hyperbolic 3-manifold of minimal hyperbolic volume.
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.
