Abstract

A three-dimensional closed orientable orbifold (with no bad suborbifolds) is known to have a geometric decomposition from work of Perelman in the manifold case, along with earlier work of Boileau-Leeb-Porti, Boileau-Maillot-Porti, Boileau-Porti, Cooper-Hodgson-Kerckhoff and Thurston. We give a new, logically independent, unified proof of the geometrization of orbifolds, using Ricci flow. Along the way we develop some tools for the geometry of orbifolds that may be of independent interest.
