Title: Geometric structures of 3-manifolds and quantum invariants

Abstract: The solution to Thurston’s Geometrization Conjecture by Perelman established that 3-manifolds decompose into pieces that admit geometric structures and that hyperbolic 3-manifolds are abundant. In the last several decades ideas from physics have led to the discovery
of powerful invariants of 3-manifold theory, such as the Jones polynomial and its generalizations (quantum invariants). After introducing some background, I will survey open conjectures and recent results on relations between geometric structures of 3-manifolds and quantum invariants of knots and 3-manifolds.
