On the knotting of short geodesics in hyperbolic 3-manifolds. (Sur le nouage des géodésiques dans les variétés hyperboliques.) (French. Abridged English version) Zbl 0840.57008
Summary: We give two remarks on closed geodesics in a hyperbolic 3-manifold from the point of view of knot theory; we show that short geodesics in a hyperbolic 3-manifold are “not knotted”.
