Towards thin triangulations of 3-manifolds
November 4, 2021, 12:20 in S6
In this talk I give an overview of recent results that link the key combinatorial parameters in the above context to classical topological invariants of 3-manifolds in a quantitative way. We establish these results through constructions involving generalized Heegaard splittings and layered triangulations of 3-manifolds.
Joint work with Jonathan Spreer and Uli Wagner.
