Geometric triangulations of a family of hyperbolic $3$–braids

Barbara Nimershiem

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 23 (2023) 4309–4348
Abstract

We construct topological triangulations for complements of (2,3,n)–pretzel knots and links with n 7. Following a procedure outlined by Futer and Guéritaud, we use a theorem of Casson and Rivin to prove the constructed triangulations are geometric. Futer, Kalfagianni and Purcell have shown (indirectly) that such braids are hyperbolic. The new result here is a direct proof.
