Counting essential surfaces in a closed hyperbolic three-manifold

Jeremy Kahn and Vladimir Marković

Geometry & Topology 16 (2012) 601–624
Abstract

Let M3 be a closed hyperbolic three-manifold. We show that the number of genus g surface subgroups of π1(M3) grows like g2g.

Keywords
hyperbolic $3$–manifold, essential surface
