Small curvature laminations in hyperbolic $3$–manifolds

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 9 (2009) 723–729
Abstract

We show that if is a codimension-one lamination in a finite volume hyperbolic 3–manifold such that the principal curvatures of each leaf of are all in the interval (δ,δ) for a fixed δ with 0 δ < 1 and no complementary region of is an interval bundle over a surface, then each boundary leaf of has a nontrivial fundamental group. We also prove existence of a fixed constant δ0 > 0 such that if is a codimension-one lamination in a finite volume hyperbolic 3–manifold such that the principal curvatures of each leaf of are all in the interval (δ0,δ0) and no complementary region of is an interval bundle over a surface, then each boundary leaf of has a noncyclic fundamental group.
