### Bring's curve $\sum_{i=1}^5 x_i^k = 0$ for $k = 1,2,3$ and an analogue $\sum_{i=1}^6 y_i^k = 0$ for $k = 1,2,4,7$

Bring's curve or Bring's surface with genus 4 and $5!=120$ automorphisms can be given by the homogeneous equations, x_1+x_2+x_3+x_4+x_5 = x_1^2+x_2^2+x_3^2+x_4^2+x_5^2 = \\x_1^3+x_2^3+x_3^3+x_4^3+...

### Can distinct meridians commute in a knot group?

Suppose I have a knot $K$ in $S^3$. Given a diagram $D$ of $K$ I get the Wirtinger presentation $\langle x_1, \dots, x_a \mid r_1, \dots, r_c\rangle$ of its knot group $\pi(K) = \pi_1(S^3 \setminus K)$...

### Inheritance of arithmeticity properties in orbifold strata

Suppose $M = K\backslash G/\Gamma$ is a quotient of a symmetric space by a lattice. I don't know all of the proper adjectives to apply here (e.g. what should be said about $G$ and so on), but I wouldn'...

### Maximal orders and surface subgroups of even genus

Let $A$ be a quaternion algebra over a totally real number field $k$. Suppose that $A$ splits at exactly one real place of $A$. Let $\mathcal{O}$ be a maximal order in $A$. Then $\mathcal{O}$ contains ...

### $1$-Lipschitz map from hyperbolic to Euclidean plane

I'm trying to find a reference to the following statement. Define a function $f$ from the hyperbolic plane (in the Poincaré unit disc model using polar coordinates) to the Euclidean plane (using polar ...

### Is there a contractible hyperbolic 3-orbifold of finite volume?

Let $\mathbb{H}^3:=\operatorname{SO}(3,1)/\operatorname{O(3)}$. Is there a lattice $\Gamma$ in $\operatorname{SO}(3,1)$ such that \begin{equation} X:=\mathbb{H}^3/\Gamma \end{equation} is contractible?...

### Almost modularity of Belyi curves and etale fundamental group of non-Belyi curves

Belyi's theorem states that every curve defined over $\mathbb{\bar Q}$ is almost modular (obtained from $\mathbb{H}^2/\Gamma,\ \Gamma$ a finite index subgroup of $PSL(2,\mathbb{Z})$), after ...

### Ideal triangulations of $3$-manifolds with "cusps" of genus $\ge 2$

Typically when one thinks about ideal triangulations of a $3$-manifold the link of each ideal vertex is a circle, so the ideal points correspond to toroidal cusps; alternatively, one can truncate the ...

### Does the Weeks manifold have the smallest volume among all finite volume oriented hyperbolic 3-manifolds?

It is a result of Chinburg-Friedman-Jones-Reid that the arithmetic hyperbolic 3-manifold of smallest volume is the Weeks manifold. There is also a result of Milley that says that if $N$ is a closed ...

### When a polygonal line become a loop in hyperbolic plane?

Suppose we have a 5 tuple of positive real numbers $(l_1,l_2,m_1,m_2,m_3)$, with $m_i \in (0,\pi)$ for all $i$. Now fix a point $v_1$ in the hyperbolic plane. Then consider a geodesic of length $l_1$ ...

### Infinitely divisible elements in Gromov hyperbolic groups

An element $g\in G$ in a group $G$ is called infinitely divisible if $b=y^n$ for infinitely many different $n\in {\Bbb Z}$. It is not hard to find a finite CW-complex (or even a compact manifold) ...

Let $P$ be a hyperbolic $4n$ gon having opposite sides with equal length and the sum of all interior angles is $2\pi$. Then is true that opposite angles are equal also?
### For fixed $B > 0$, asymptotically describe the upper half plane complex zeros of $B\cos(\omega z) = iz$ as $\omega \to \infty$
Long story short, I am seeking to evaluate an oscillatory integral via complex methods, whose partial fraction expansion has $B\cos(\omega z) - iz$ in the denominator, where $B, \omega$ are positive ...
