Complex hyperbolic geometry of the figure-eight knot

Martin Deraux and Elisha Falbel

Geometry & Topology 19 (2015) 237–293
Abstract

We show that the figure-eight knot complement admits a uniformizable spherical CR structure, ie it occurs as the manifold at infinity of a complex hyperbolic orbifold. The uniformization is unique provided we require the peripheral subgroups to have unipotent holonomy.
