Abstract

We have defined the weight of the pair (aOE (c) Sa R pound >,R) for a given presentation aOE (c) Sa R pound > of a group, where the number of generators is equal to the number of relations. We present an algorithm to construct crystallizations of 3-manifolds whose fundamental group has a presentation with two generators and two relations. If the weight of (aOE (c) Sa R pound >,R) is n, then our algorithm constructs all the n-vertex crystallizations which yield (aOE (c) Sa R pound >,R). As an application, we have constructed some new crystallizations of 3-manifolds. We have generalized our algorithm for presentations with three generators and a certain class of relations. For maeyen3 and maeyennaeyenkaeyen2, our generalized algorithm gives a -vertex crystallization of the closed connected orientable 3-manifold MaOE (c) m,n,k > having fundamental group . These crystallizations are minimal and unique with respect to the given presentations. If ` n=2' or ` kaeyen3 and maeyen4' then our crystallization of MaOE (c) m,n,k > is vertex-minimal for all the known cases.
