Twisted face-pairing 3-manifolds which are hyperbolic

Sungbok Hong, Kyunghwa Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We construct a family of 3-balls using cones which represent closed orientable 3-manifolds and study twisted face-pairing construction due to Cannon, Floyd and Parry to understand the structure of such manifolds. Moreover, we prove that those manifolds are hyperbolic.
