All roots of unity are detected by the A–polynomial

Abstract

For an arbitrary positive integer n, we construct infinitely many one-cusped hyperbolic 3–manifolds where each manifold’s A–polynomial detects every nth root of unity. This answers a question of Cooper, Culler, Gillet, Long, and Shalen as to which roots of unity arise in this manner.
