Representations of the braid group and punctured torus bundles

Takayuki Morifuji, Masaaki Suzuki

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this short note, we consider a family of linear representations of the braid group and the fundamental group of a punctured torus bundle over the circle. We construct an irreducible (special) unitary representation of the fundamental group of a closed 3-manifold obtained by the Dehn filling.
