Families of Representations of Punctured Torus Bundles
We construct a complex surface of irreducible $SL(6,\C)$ representations of the fundamental group of a once punctured torus bundle over $S^1$. It contains the Mangum-Shanahan curve of $SL(3,\C)$ representations [MS]Î½ll. As a corollary, we show that almost all punctured torus bundle groups are linear.
