Universal Bounds for Hyperbolic Dehn Surgery

  title={Universal Bounds for Hyperbolic Dehn Surgery},
  author={Craig Hodgson and Steven P Kerckhoff},
This paper gives a quantitative version of Thurston's hyperbolic Dehn surgery theorem. Applications include the first universal bounds on the number of non-hyperbolic Dehn fillings on a cusped hyperbolic 3-manifold, and estimates on the changes in volume and core geodesic length during hyperbolic Dehn filling. The proofs involve the construction of a family of hyperbolic cone-manifold structures, using infinitesimal harmonic deformations and analysis of geometric limits.
