Hyperbolic manifolds containing high topological index surfaces

Marion Campisi and Matt Rathbun

Vol. 296 (2018), No. 2, 305–319

If a graph is in bridge position in a 3-manifold so that the graph complement is irreducible and boundary-irreducible, we generalize a result of Bachman and Schleimer to prove that the complexity of a surface properly embedded in the complement of the graph bounds the graph distance of the bridge surface. We use this result to construct, for any natural number n, a hyperbolic manifold containing a surface of topological index n.
