Veering triangulations admit strict angle structures

Geometry & Topology 15 (2011) 2073–2089
Abstract

Agol recently introduced the concept of a veering taut triangulation of a 3–manifold, which is a taut ideal triangulation with some extra combinatorial structure. We define the weaker notion of a “veering triangulation” and use it to show that all veering triangulations admit strict angle structures. We also answer a question of Agol, giving an example of a veering taut triangulation that is not layered.
