Face pairing maps of ford domains for cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds

Sungbok Hong, Jungsoo Kim

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We will describe a way to construct Ford domains of cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds on maximal cusp diagrams and compute fundamental groups using face pairing maps as generators and Cannon-Floyd-Parry's edge cycles as relations. We also describe explicitly a cutting and pasting alteration to reduce the number of faces on the bottom region of Ford domains. We expect that our analysis of Ford domains will be useful on other future research.
