Injectivity radii of hyperbolic integer homology $3$–spheres
We construct hyperbolic integer homology –spheres where the injectivity radius is arbitrarily large for nearly all points of the manifold. As a consequence, there exists a sequence of closed hyperbolic –manifolds that Benjamini–Schramm converge to whose normalized Ray–Singer analytic torsions do not converge to the –analytic torsion of . This contrasts with the work of Abert et al who showed that Benjamini–Schramm convergence forces convergence of normalized Betti numbers. Our results shed light on a conjecture of Bergeron and Venkatesh on the growth of torsion in the homology of arithmetic hyperbolic –manifolds, and we give experimental results which support this and related conjectures.
