### Mean number of $n$-simplices per $(n-2)$-simplex in a triangulated $n$-manifold

Work by Tamura (extending results by Luo and Stong) shows the following.
Theorem: For any closed 3-manifold $M$ and any rational number $4.5 < r < 6$ there is a triangulation $T$ of $M$ for ...

### What is known about the distribution of average edge-degrees for 3-manifold triangulations (with the number of 3-simplices less than a fixed constant)?

This is my first question on mathoverflow! It relates to a project I'm undertaking with a student.
Work by Tamura (extending results by Luo and Stong) shows that for any closed 3-manifold $M$ and any ...
