Extensions of the Euler–Satake characteristic for nonorientable $3$-orbifolds and indistinguishable examples

Ryan Carroll and Christopher Seaton

Vol. 6 (2013), No. 3, 345–368
Abstract

We compute the F-Euler–Satake characteristics of an arbitrary closed, effective 3-dimensional orbifold Q where F is a free group with generators. We focus on the case of nonorientable orbifolds, extending previous results for the case of orientable orbifolds. Using these computations, we determine examples of distinct 3-orbifolds Q and Q such that χΓES(Q) = χΓES(Q) for every finitely generated discrete group Γ.
