Peripheral separability and cusps of arithmetic hyperbolic orbifolds

Abstract

For X = , , or , it is well known that cusp cross-sections of finite volume X–hyperbolic (n + 1)–orbifolds are flat n–orbifolds or almost flat orbifolds modelled on the (2n + 1)–dimensional Heisenberg group N2n+1 or the (4n + 3)–dimensional quaternionic Heisenberg group N4n+3(). We give a necessary and sufficient condition for such manifolds to be diffeomorphic to a cusp cross-section of an arithmetic X–hyperbolic (n + 1)–orbifold.

A principal tool in the proof of this classification theorem is a subgroup separability result which may be of independent interest.

Keywords
Borel subgroup, cusp cross-section, hyperbolic space, nil manifold, subgroup separability.
