The simple loop conjecture for $3$–manifolds modeled on Sol

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 16 (2016) 3051–3071
Abstract

The simple loop conjecture for 3–manifolds states that every 2–sided immersion of a closed surface into a 3–manifold is either injective on fundamental groups or admits a compression. This can be viewed as a generalization of the loop theorem to immersed surfaces. We prove the conjecture in the case that the target 3–manifold admits a geometric structure modeled on Sol.
