1-relator groups and Heegaard splittings


Speaker: Joe Masters, SUNY Buffalo
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Tue, May 8 2007, 11:00AM

We show that if M is a compact, orientable 3-manifold which fibers over the circle, then every 1-relator presentation of pi_1(M) is induced by a Heegaard splitting of M.
