Title: Hyperbolic polyhedra and hyperbolic knots: the right-angled case
Abstract: A polyhedron is said to be right-angled if all its dihedral angles are equal to pi/2. Three-dimensional hyperbolic manifolds constructed from bounded right-angled polyhedra have many interesting properties . Inoue [2,3] initiated enumerating bounded right-angled hyperbolic polyhedra by their volumes. Atkinson obtained low and upper bounds of volumes via vertex number . In  we enumerate ideal (with all vertices at infinity) right-angled hyperbolic polyhedra. The obtained results imply that the right-angled knot conjecture from  holds for knots with small crossing number. Atkinson’s upper bounds were improved in [7,8] for bounded and ideal cases both. Finally, we will discuss the relation of results from  with the maximum volume theorem from .
The talk is based on joint results with Andrey Egorov [5,7,8].
