The deformation theory of hyperbolic cone–$3$–manifolds with cone-angles less than $2\pi$

Hartmut Weiß

Abstract

We develop the deformation theory of hyperbolic cone–3–manifolds with cone-angles less than 2π, that is, contained in the interval (0,2π). In the present paper we focus on deformations keeping the topological type of the cone-manifold fixed. We prove local rigidity for such structures. This gives a positive answer to a question of A Casson.
