This book gives a complete proof of the geometrization conjecture, which describes all compact 3-manifolds in terms of geometric pieces, i.e. Thurston’s Geometrization Conjecture (now, a theorem of Perelman) aims to answer the question: How could you describe possible shapes of our universe?.

For example, the mapping torus of an Anosov map of a torus has a finite volume solv structure, but its JSJ decomposition cuts it open along one torus to produce a product of a torus and a unit interval, and the interior of this has no finite volume geometric structure.

There can be more than one way to decompose a closed 3-manifold into pieces with geometric structures. Available at the AMS Bookstore. In addition, a complete picture of the local structure of Alexandrov surfaces is developed.

There are exactly 10 finite closed 3-manifolds with this geometry, 6 orientable and 4 non-orientable. The Fourier… Anonymous on Jean Bourgain.

The Geometrization Conjecture

I will take it cobjecture granted that this result is of interest, but you can read the Notices article of Milnorthe Bulletin article of Morganor the Clay Mathematical Institute description of the problem also by Milnor for background and motivation for this conjecture. KM on Polymath15, eleventh thread: Publish or Perish Press, p.


Under normalized Ricci flow compact manifolds with this geometry converge rather slowly to R 1.

It is possible to choose a “canonical” decomposition into pieces with geometric structure, for example by first cutting the manifold into prime pieces in a minimal way, then cutting these up using the smallest possible number of tori. Anonymous on Jean Bourgain.

It is also possible to work directly with non-orientable manifolds, but this gives some extra complications: ST 6 non-technical admin 43 conjecutre 30 diversions 4 media 12 journals 3 obituary 12 opinion 30 paper book 17 Companion 13 geometrjzation 19 question polymath 83 talk 64 DLS 19 teaching A — Real analysis 11 B — Real analysis 21 Gwometrization — Real analysis 6 A — complex analysis 9 C — complex analysis 5 A — analytic prime number theory 16 A — ergodic conjecturf 18 A — Hilbert’s fifth problem 12 A — Incompressible fluid equations 5 A — random matrices 14 B — expansion in groups 8 B — Higher order Fourier analysis 9 B — incompressible Euler equations 1 A — probability theory 6 G — poincare conjecture 20 Logic reading seminar 8 travel In addition, a complete picture of the local structure of Alexandrov surfaces is developed.

The first two are mapping tori of the identity map and antipode map of the 2-sphere, and are the only examples of 3-manifolds that are prime but not irreducible.

There are also uncountably many model geometries without compact quotients. What is good mathematics? W… Terence Tao on Polymath15, eleventh thread: I unfortunately never had the opportunity to meet Thurston in person although we did correspond a few times onlinebut I know many mathematicians who have been profoundly influenced by him and his work.

At the risk of belaboring the obvious, here is the statement of that conjecture: This book gives a complete proof of the geometrization conjecture, which describes all compact 3-manifolds in terms of geometric pieces, i. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Fields Medal was awarded to Thurston in partially for his proof of the geometrization conjecture for Haken manifolds. There are 8 possible geometric structures in 3 dimensions, described in the next section. Unlimited random practice problems and answers with built-in Step-by-step solutions.


Press, Boston, MA, Euclidean geometry2. There is the paper of Shioya and Yamaguchi [2] that uses Perelman’s stability theorem [3] and a fibration theorem for Alexandrov spaces. Collection of teaching and learning tools built by Wolfram education experts: The first half of the book is devoted to showing that these limits divide naturally along incompressible tori into pieces on which the metric is converging smoothly to hyperbolic metrics and pieces that are locally more and more volume collapsed.

Also containing proofs of Perelman’s Theorem 7. On the other hand, the geometrisation conjecture will be rather visibly lurking beneath the surface in the discussion of this lecture. This is the only model geometry that cannot be realized as a left invariant metric on a 3-dimensional Lie group.

Updates on my research and expository papers, veometrization of open problems, and other maths-related topics. There is a unique minimal way of cutting an irreducible oriented 3-manifold along tori into pieces that are Seifert manifolds or atoroidal called the JSJ decompositionwhich is not quite the same as the decomposition in the geometrization conjecture, because some of the pieces in the JSJ decomposition might not have finite volume geometric structures.
