Residually free $3$–manifolds

Henry Wilton

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 2031–2047
Abstract

We classify those compact 3–manifolds with incompressible toral boundary whose fundamental groups are residually free. For example, if such a manifold M is prime and orientable and the fundamental group of M is nontrivial then MΣ × S1, where Σ is a surface.
