Essential loops in taut ideal triangulations

Saul Schleimer and Henry Segerman

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 20 (2020) 487–501
Abstract

In this note we combinatorialise a technique of Novikov. We use this to prove that, in a three-manifold equipped with a taut ideal triangulation, any vertical or normal loop is nontrivial in the fundamental group.

Keywords
