Group invariant Peano curves

James W Cannon and William P Thurston

Geometry & Topology 11 (2007) 1315–1355

Our main theorem is that, if M is a closed hyperbolic 3–manifold which fibres over the circle with hyperbolic fibre S and pseudo-Anosov monodromy, then the lift of the inclusion of S in M to universal covers extends to a continuous map of B2 to B3, where Bn = Hn Sn1. The restriction to S1 maps onto S2 and gives an example of an equivariant S2–filling Peano curve. After proving the main theorem, we discuss the case of the figure-eight knot complement, which provides evidence for the conjecture that the theorem extends to the case when S is a once-punctured hyperbolic surface.
