The Seifert Fiber Space Conjecture
A Seifert Fiber Space (SFS) is a 3dimensional manifold that
is foliated by circles ("fibers"). A fiber generates a cyclic
normal subgroup in the fundamental group of such a space. The
SFS Conjecture is that any compact 3manifold whose fundamental
group contains a cyclic normal subgroup is a SFS. The conjecture
has been proven for various cases. This talk gives a survey of
these results.
Refreshments will be served in Math Annex Room 1115, 3:15 p.m.
