The Dilogarithm Function in Geometry and Number Theory (Pt. 3)


In this third part, we explore more the connections of the Bloch-Wigner dilogarithm with volumes of hyperbolic 3-manifolds. Specifically, we will express the volume of a hyperbolic 3-manifold as a finite sum of Bloch-Wigner dilogarithms. If time allows, we also discuss the Bloch group.
