    brief category:people-entry for hyperlinking references at orbifold and hyperbolic manifold, in particular to this excellent book:

    The link to Vanderbilt uni goes nowhere as the apparent links on that further page lead to messages saying it has been archived or suspended.

    I was wondering if this John Ratcliffe was the same at the author of Ratcliffe’s lemma from Combinatorial Group Theory. It looks likely as his thesis was on: The Theory of Crossed Modules with Applications to Cohomology of Groups and Combinatorial Homotopy theory

    The link in the entry

    works fine for me.

    When you follow that link the page has a link:

    Click here for a complete list of Research Articles, Books and Book Reviews.

    That leads nowhere. There seems nothing one can do as I tried other routes to see if I could get to the corresponding page. It gives:

    This site has been archived or suspended.

    I also tried with the same effect.

    It is not important but I thought I would mention it in case someone could find how to display his publication list, which might be useful.

    It’s the same guy. MathSciNet lists only one John Ratcliffe (papers, subscription needed), and the thesis is as you claim, up to his most recent paper in 2017, A Bieberbach theorem for crystallographic group extensions.
