Seifert Fiber Space - Negative Orbifold Euler Characteristic

Negative Orbifold Euler Characteristic

This is the general case. All such Seifert fibrations are determined up to isomorphism by their fundamental group. The total spaces are aspherical (in other words all higher homotopy groups vanish). They have Thurston geometries of type the universal cover of SL2(R), unless some finite cover splits as a product, in which case they have Thurston geometries of type H2×R. This happens if the manifold is non-orientable or b + Σbi/ai= 0.

Famous quotes containing the word negative:

    The negative always wins at last, but I like it none the better for that.
