Description

- We consider discrete groups admitting proper cocompact topological actions by homeomorphisms on $R^4$. We will say that such a group Γ is geometrized if we can build an action of Γ by projective transformations on a properly convex open subset of the real projective 4-space, or a convex cocompact action of Γ on the real hyperbolic 5-space or on its Lorentzian counterpart, the anti-de Sitter 5-space.

Certain uniform lattices of the isometry group of hyperbolic 4-space are geometrizable by the three geometries mentioned above. We will discuss the existence of groups which are not uniform lattices in hyperbolic 4-space, and which yet admit several of these three geometries. If time allows, we will also discuss the corresponding deformation spaces.

This is joint work with Gye-Seon Lee (Heidelberg).
