|TITLE||Pseudo-developing of 3-manifolds using simplicial polyhedra|
|ABSTRACT||We survey that a well-known method to construct a developing maps on hyperbolic 3-space of a 3-manifold by using ideal tetrahedra and a solution of Thurston gluing equation.
We see that using ideal simplicial polyhedra instead of ideal tetrahedra has some benefit to study representation variety or character variety. In particular, we introduce a developing using ideal octahedra for knot complements.
