Asymptotics of quantum 6j symbols

Qingtao Chen, Jun Murakami

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The asymptotics of the quantum 6j symbols corresponding to a hyperbolic tetrahedron is investigated and the first two leading terms are determined for the case that the tetrahedron has a ideal or ultra-ideal vertex. These terms are given by the volume and the determinant of the Gram matrix of the tetrahedron. A relation to the volume conjecture of the Turaev-Viro invariant is also discussed.
