Title:Degree of $L^2$-Alexander torsion for 3-manifolds

Abstract:For an irreducible orientable compact $3$-manifold $N$ with empty or incompressible toral boundary, the full $L^2$--Alexander torsion $\tau^{(2)}(N,\phi)(t)$ associated to any real first cohomology class $\phi$ of $N$ is represented by a function of a positive real variable $t$. In this talk, I will show that $\tau^{(2)}(N,\phi)$ is continuous, everywhere positive, and asymptotically monomial in both ends. Moreover, the degree of $\tau^{(2)}(N,\phi)$ equals the Thurston norm of $\phi$.
