The hyperbolization theorem for fibre manifolds of dimension 3. (Le théorème d’hyperbolisation pour les variétés fibrées de dimension 3.) (French) Zbl 0855.57003
Astérisque. 235. Paris: Société Mathématique de France, x, 159 p. (1996).
This book is devoted to proving the Thurston hyperbolization theorem for the case of compact, atoroidal, irreducible, sufficiently large 3-manifolds which are fibered over the circle.
W. P. Thurston’s more general theorem asserts the existence of a hyperbolic structure on the interior of any compact, atoroidal, irreducible, sufficiently large 3-manifold [Bull. Am. Math. Soc., New Ser. 6, 357-379 (1982; Zbl 0496.57005)]. The author’s proof follows the lines of an unpublished 1986 preprint of Thurston’s except at “l’étape essentielle – ‘le théorème de la limite double’ ” which is done in a new way. The degree of detail of the proof is suggested by the range of the contents:
