In this chapter, we construct some examples of hyperbolic 3-manifolds. We begin with a geometric method for constructing spherical, Euclidean, and hyperbolic 3-manifolds in Sections 10.1 and 10.2. Examples of complete hyperbolic 3-manifolds of finite volume are constructed in Section 10.3. The problem of computing the volume of a hyperbolic 3-manifold is taken up in Section 10.4. The chapter ends with a detailed study of hyperbolic Dehn surgery on the figure-eight knot complement.
