Divergent sequences of Kleinian groups

Ken'ichi Ohshika

Abstract. One of the basic problems in studying topological structures of deformation spaces for Kleinian groups is to find a criterion to distinguish convergent sequences from divergent sequences. In this paper, we shall give a sufficient condition for sequences of Kleinian groups isomorphic to surface groups to diverge in the deformation spaces.

Keywords. Kleinian group, hyperbolic 3-manifold, deformation space
