Fundamentals of Hyperbolic Manifolds: Selected Expositions available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Cambridge University Press
This book includes reissued articles from two classic sources on hyperbolic manifolds. Part I is an exposition of some of Thurston's pioneering Princeton Notes, with a new introduction describing recent advances, including an up-to-date bibliography. Part II expounds the theory of convex hull boundaries: a new appendix describes recent work. Part III is Thurston's famous paper on earthquakes in hyperbolic geometry. The final part introduces the theory of measures on the limit set. Graduate students and researchers will welcome this rigorous introduction to the modern theory of hyperbolic manifolds.
