Given a configuration $$\mathbf {x}$$x of n distinct points in hyperbolic 3-space $$H^3$$H3, Sir Michael Atiyah associated n polynomials $$p_1,\ldots ,p_n$$p1,…,pn of a variable $$t \in \mathbb {C}P^1$$t∈CP1, of degree $$n-1$$n-1, and conjectured that they are linearly independent over $$\mathbb {C}$$C, no matter which configuration $$\mathbf {x}$$x one starts with. We prove this conjecture for almost all hyperbolic configurations of four points, namely for a subset of the $$n=4$$n=4 hyperbolic… CONTINUE READING
