Heegaard splittings of graph manifolds
 Geometry & Topology
, 2004
"... Let M be a totally orientable graph manifold with characteristic submanifold T and let M = V ∪S W be a Heegaard splitting. We prove that S is standard. In particular, S can be isotoped so that for each vertex manifold N of M, S ∩ N is either horizontal, pseudohorizontal, vertical or pseudovertical. ..."

Graph Manifolds And Taut Foliations
 J. DIFFERENTIAL GEOM
, 1997
"... We examine the existence of foliations without Reeb components, taut foliations, and foliations with no S¹ x S¹leaves, among graph manifolds. We show that each condition is strictly stronger than its predecessor(s), in the strongest possible sense; there are manifolds admitting foliations of eac ..."

Profinite properties of graph manifolds
, 2009
"... Let M be a closed, orientable, irreducible, geometrizable 3manifold. We prove that the profinite topology on the fundamental group of π1(M) is efficient with respect to the JSJ decomposition of M. We go on to prove that π1(M) is good, in the sense of Serre, if all the pieces of the JSJ decompositio ..."

decomposition are. We also prove that if M is a graph manifold then π1(M) is conjugacy separable. A group G is conjugacy separable if every conjugacy class is closed in the profinite topology on G. This can be thought of as a strengthening of residual finiteness (which is equivalent to the trivial subgroup’s
Graph manifolds with boundary are virtually special
, 2013
"... Let M be a graph manifold. We prove that fundamental groups of embedded incompressible surfaces in M are separable in π1M, and that the double cosets for crossing surfaces are also separable. We deduce that if there is a ‘sufficient ’ collection of surfaces in M, then π1M is virtually the fundamenta ..."

STABILIZATIONS OF HEEGAARD SPLITTINGS OF GRAPH MANIFOLDS
, 2008
"... We show that after one stabilization, a strongly irreducible Heegaard splitting of suitably large genus of a graph manifold is isotopic to an amalgamation along a modified version of the system of canonical tori in the JSJ decomposition. As a corollary, two strongly irreducible Heegaard splittings ..."

On the geometric and algebraic rank of graph manifolds

"... Abstract. For any n ∈ N we construct graph manifolds of genus 4n that have 3ngenerated fundamental group. 1. introduction A Heegaard surface of an orientable closed 3manifold M is an embedded orientable surface S such that M − S consists of 2 handlebodies V1 and V2. This decomposition of M is call ..."

Znmanifolds in 4dimensional graphmanifolds
, 2005
"... A standard fact about two incompressible surfaces in an irreducible 3manifold is that one can move one of them by isotopy so that their intersection becomes π1injective. By extending it on the maps of some 3dimensional Znmanifolds into 4manifolds, we prove that any homotopy equivalence of 4dim ..."

Quasiisometric classification of graph manifold groups

We also classify the quasiisometry types of fundamental groups of graphmanifolds with boundary in terms of certain finite twocolored ..."
