On the number of ends of rank one locally symmetric spaces

Matthew Stover

Geometry & Topology 17 (2013) 905–924
Abstract

Let Y be a noncompact rank one locally symmetric space of finite volume. Then Y has a finite number e(Y ) > 0 of topological ends. In this paper, we show that for any n , the Y with e(Y ) n that are arithmetic fall into finitely many commensurability classes. In particular, there is a constant cn such that n–cusped arithmetic orbifolds do not exist in dimension greater than cn. We make this explicit for one-cusped arithmetic hyperbolic n–orbifolds and prove that none exist for n 30.
