Speaker: Dennis Garity

Abstract: This is the first of two talks on certain 3-manifolds that are increasing unions of solid tori. Recently, in a joint paper with Repovs and Wright, we produced infinite classes of such manifolds that were unions of 2 copies of 3-space, and infinite classes that were not such unions. In the first talk, I will introduce some of the background information needed including properties of manifolds that are increasing unions of tori and

some simple characterizations of 3-dimensional Euclidean space.
