The co-rank conjecture for 3–manifold groups

Christopher J Leininger and Alan W Reid

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 2 (2002) 37–50

arXiv: math.GT/0202261

Abstract

In this paper we construct explicit examples of both closed and non-compact finite volume hyperbolic manifolds which provide counterexamples to the conjecture that the co-rank of a 3–manifold group (also known as the cut number) is bounded below by one-third the first Betti number.
