Lack of references, and a missprint[edit]

I would reeeeeally like to know where the original 2 \pi theorem was originally stated!

Morevoer: I guess that

"A horoball packing argument due to Thurston shows that there are at most 48 slopes to avoid on each cusp to get a nonhyperbolic 3-manifold"

should be corrected as: "... to get a HYPERBOLIC 3-manifold" -- (talk) 23:10, 10 April 2016 (UTC)


This is a horribly written page. If someone didn't know what this was already, this would be way over their head. A mathematician wouldn't need this page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

I agree it's not very good. I am a mathematician, and I don't need this page because I can't even make up my mind whether it's legitimate or an exceptionally good hoax. It reads like one of those bad Scientific American articles on physics that hide everything that is needed to understand the topic. --Hans Adler (talk) 11:02, 8 December 2008 (UTC)


Is there a way to graph this? It sounds like something in 3D or greater. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reddwarf2956 (talkcontribs) 01:11, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
