Hilden, Hugh Michael and Lozano Imízcoz, María Teresa and Montesinos Amilibia, José María (1992) The arithmeticity of the figure eight knot orbifolds. In Topology '90. Ohio State University Mathematical Research Institute Publications (1). Walter de Gruyter & Co, Berlin, pp. 169-183. ISBN 3-11-012598-6


Continuing their investigation [in Topology '90 (Columbus, OH, 1990), 133–167, de Gruyter, Berlin, 1992;] of the problem of how rarely a hyperbolic orbifold is arithmetic, the authors classify the arithmetic figure eight orbifolds: there are exactly six among the hyperbolic figure eight orbifolds (K,n), n>3. This relies on work by H. Helling, A. C. Kim and J. L. Mennicke ["On Fibonacci groups'', Preprint; per bibl.] and extends a recent result of A. Reid [J. London Math. Soc. (2) 43 (1991), no. 1, 171–184;] that (K,∞) is the only arithmetic knot complement.
