Tight contact structures on hyperbolic three-manifolds

Let Sigma(g) denote a closed orientable surface of genus g >= 2. We consider a certain infinite family of Sigma(g)-bundles over circle whose monodromies are taken from some collection of pseudo-Anosov diffeomorphisms. We show the existence of tight contact structure on every closed 3-manifold obtained via rational r-surgery along a section of any member of the family whenever r not equal 2g - 1. Combining with Thurston's hyperbolic Dehn surgery theorem, we obtain infinitely many hyperbolic closed 3-manifolds admitting tight contact structures.


Equivariant cross sections of complex Stiefel manifolds
Onder, T (Elsevier BV, 2001-01-16)
Let G be a finite group and let M be a unitary representation space of G. A solution to the existence problem of G-equivariant cross sections of the complex Stiefel manifold W-k(M) of unitary k-frames over the unit sphere S(M) is given under mild restrictions on G and on fixed point sets. In the case G is an even ordered group, some sufficient conditions for the existence of G-equivariant real frame fields on spheres with complementary G-equivariant complex structures are also obtained, improving earlier re...
Some cardinal invariants on the space C-alpha (X, Y)
Onal, S; Vural, C (Elsevier BV, 2005-05-14)
Let C-alpha (X, Y) be the set of all continuous functions from X to Y endowed with the set-open topology where a is a hereditarily closed, compact network on X such that closed under finite unions. We define two properties (E1) and (E2) on the triple (alpha, X, Y) which yield new equalities and inequalities between some cardinal invariants on C-alpha (X, Y) and some cardinal invariants on the spaces X, Y such as:

LetXbe a complete toric variety equipped with the action of a torusT, andGa reductive algebraic group, defined over an algebraically closed fieldK. We introduce the notion of a compatible n-ary sumation -filtered algebra associated toX, generalizing the notion of a compatible n-ary sumation -filtered vector space due to Klyachko, where n-ary sumation denotes the fan ofX. We combine Klyachko's classification ofT-equivariant vector bundles onXwith Nori's Tannakian approach to principalG-bundles, to give an eq...
On endomorphisms of surface mapping class groups
Korkmaz, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2001-05-01)
In this paper, we prove that every endomorphism of the mapping class group of an orientable surface onto a subgroup of finite index is in fact an automorphism.
Paracompactness of spaces which have covering properties weaker than paracompactness
Onal, S (Elsevier BV, 2001-07-16)
We prove that (i) a collectionwise normal, orthocompact, theta (m)-refinable, [m, N-0]-submetacompact space is paracompact, (ii) a collectionwise normal, [infinity, m]-paracompact [m, N-0]-submetacompact space is paracompact. This gives a sufficient condition for the paracompactness of para-Lindelof, collectionwise normal spaces.
