Taut foliations and left-orderability of 3 manifold groups

Ying Hu (University of Nebraska-Omaha)

Abstract: A group G is called left-orderable if there exists a strict total order on G which is invariant under the left-multiplication. Given an irreducible 3-manifold M, it is conjectured that the fundamental group of the 3-manifold is left-orderable if and only if M admits a co-orientable taut foliation. In this talk, we will discuss the left-orderability of the fundamental groups of 3-manifolds that admit co-orientable taut foliations.
