Detailed Description

Represents a general lens space.

The lens space L(p,q) is the 3-manifold you get by p/q Dehn surgery on the unknot. For instance, L(1,0) and L(1,1) are the 3-sphere, L(0,1) is the product S^1 x S^2, and L(p,1) is the circle bundle over S^2 with Euler class p. In L(p,q) if you take a generator g of H_1 and evaluate the torsion linking form on it, then <g,g> = [+/- r^2 q/p] in Q/Z where r is an integer.

All optional NManifold routines are implemented for this class.

Member Function Documentation

NTriangulation* regina::NLensSpace::construct ( ) const
virtual

Returns a triangulation of this 3-manifold, if such a construction has been implemented.

If no construction routine has yet been implemented for this 3-manifold (for instance, if this 3-manifold is a Seifert fibred space with sufficiently many exceptional fibres) then this routine will return 0.

The details of which 3-manifolds have construction routines can be found in the notes for the corresponding subclasses of NManifold. The default implemention of this routine returns 0.

Returns
a triangulation of this 3-manifold, or 0 if the appropriate construction routine has not yet been implemented.

Reimplemented from regina::NManifold.

std::string regina::ShareableObject::detail ( ) const
inherited

Returns the output from writeTextLong() as a string.

Returns
a long text representation of this object.
NAbelianGroup* regina::NLensSpace::getHomologyH1 ( ) const
virtual

Returns the first homology group of this 3-manifold, if such a routine has been implemented.

If the calculation of homology has not yet been implemented for this 3-manifold then this routine will return 0.

The details of which 3-manifolds have homology calculation routines can be found in the notes for the corresponding subclasses of NManifold. The default implemention of this routine returns 0.

The homology group will be newly allocated and must be destroyed by the caller of this routine.

Returns
the first homology group of this 3-manifold, or 0 if the appropriate calculation routine has not yet been implemented.

Reimplemented from regina::NManifold.

std::string regina::NManifold::getName ( ) const
inherited

Returns the common name of this 3-manifold as a human-readable string.

Returns
the common name of this 3-manifold.
unsigned long regina::NLensSpace::getP ( ) const
inline

Returns the first parameter p of this lens space L(p,q).

See the class notes for details.

Returns
the first parameter.
unsigned long regina::NLensSpace::getQ ( ) const
inline

Returns the second parameter q of this lens space L(p,q).

See the class notes for details.

The value of q returned will be the smallest q between 0 and p-1 inclusive that produces the same 3-manifold as this lens space. This means it might not be the value of q that was used to initialise this lens space.

std::string regina::NManifold::getStructure ( ) const
inherited

Returns details of the structure of this 3-manifold that might not be evident from its common name.

For instance, for an orbit space S^3/G this routine might return the full Seifert structure.

This routine may return the empty string if no additional details are deemed necessary.

Returns
a string describing additional structural details.
std::string regina::NManifold::getTeXName ( ) const
inherited

Returns the common name of this 3-manifold in TeX format.

No leading or trailing dollar signs will be included.

Warning
The behaviour of this routine has changed as of Regina 4.3; in earlier versions, leading and trailing dollar signs were provided.
Returns
the common name of this 3-manifold in TeX format.
bool regina::NLensSpace::isHyperbolic ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Returns whether or not this is a finite-volume hyperbolic manifold.

Returns
true if this is a finite-volume hyperbolic manifold, or false if not.

Implements regina::NManifold.

bool regina::NManifold::operator< ( const NManifold compare) const
inherited

Determines in a fairly ad-hoc fashion whether this representation of this 3-manifold is "smaller" than the given representation of the given 3-manifold.

The ordering imposed on 3-manifolds is purely aesthetic on the part of the author, and is subject to change in future versions of Regina.

The ordering also depends on the particular representation of the 3-manifold that is used. As an example, different representations of the same Seifert fibred space might well be ordered differently.

All that this routine really offers is a well-defined way of ordering 3-manifold representations.

Warning
Currently this routine is only implemented in full for closed 3-manifolds. For most classes of bounded 3-manifolds, this routine simply compares the strings returned by getName().
Parameters
comparethe 3-manifold representation with which this will be compared.
Returns
true if and only if this is "smaller" than the given 3-manifold representation.
bool regina::NLensSpace::operator== ( const NLensSpace compare) const
inline

Determines whether this and the given lens space are homeomorphic 3-manifolds.

Note that this may be true even if they were initialised with different parameters.

Parameters
comparethe lens space with which this will be compared.
Returns
true if and only if this and the given lens space are homeomorphic.
std::string regina::ShareableObject::str ( ) const
inherited

Returns the output from writeTextShort() as a string.

Python:
This implements the __str__() function.
Returns
a short text representation of this object.
std::string regina::ShareableObject::toString ( ) const
inlineinherited

A deprecated alias for str(), which returns the output from writeTextShort() as a string.

Deprecated:
This routine has (at long last) been deprecated; use the simpler-to-type str() instead.
Returns
a short text representation of this object.
std::string regina::ShareableObject::toStringLong ( ) const
inlineinherited

A deprecated alias for detail(), which returns the output from writeTextLong() as a string.

Deprecated:
This routine has (at long last) been deprecated; use the simpler-to-type detail() instead.
Returns
a long text representation of this object.
std::ostream& regina::NLensSpace::writeName ( std::ostream &  out) const
virtual

Writes the common name of this 3-manifold as a human-readable string to the given output stream.

Python:
The parameter out does not exist; standard output will be used.
Parameters
outthe output stream to which to write.
Returns
a reference to the given output stream.

Implements regina::NManifold.

std::ostream & regina::NManifold::writeStructure ( std::ostream &  out) const
inlinevirtualinherited

Writes details of the structure of this 3-manifold that might not be evident from its common name to the given output stream.

For instance, for an orbit space S^3/G this routine might write the full Seifert structure.

This routine may write nothing if no additional details are deemed necessary. The default implementation of this routine behaves in this way.

Python:
The parameter out does not exist; standard output will be used.
Parameters
outthe output stream to which to write.
Returns
a reference to the given output stream.

Reimplemented in regina::NSFSpace, and regina::NSnapPeaCensusManifold.

std::ostream& regina::NLensSpace::writeTeXName ( std::ostream &  out) const
virtual

Writes the common name of this 3-manifold in TeX format to the given output stream.

No leading or trailing dollar signs will be included.

Warning
The behaviour of this routine has changed as of Regina 4.3; in earlier versions, leading and trailing dollar signs were provided.
Python:
The parameter out does not exist; standard output will be used.
Parameters
outthe output stream to which to write.
Returns
a reference to the given output stream.

Implements regina::NManifold.

void regina::NManifold::writeTextLong ( std::ostream &  out) const
inlinevirtualinherited

Writes this object in long text format to the given output stream.

The output should provide the user with all the information they could want. The output should be human-readable, should not contain extremely long lines (so users can read the output in a terminal), and should end with a final newline.

The default implementation of this routine merely calls writeTextShort() and adds a newline.

Python:
The parameter out does not exist; standard output will be used.
Parameters
outthe output stream to which to write.

Reimplemented from regina::ShareableObject.

void regina::NManifold::writeTextShort ( std::ostream &  out) const
inlinevirtualinherited

Writes this object in short text format to the given output stream.

The output should be human-readable, should fit on a single line, and should not end with a newline.

Python:
The parameter out does not exist; standard output will be used.
Parameters
outthe output stream to which to write.

Implements regina::ShareableObject.
