Three-manifolds and Kähler groups
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 62 (2012) no. 3, pp. 1081-1090.

We give a simple proof of a result originally due to Dimca and Suciu: a group that is both Kähler and the fundamental group of a closed three-manifold is finite. We also prove that a group that is both the fundamental group of a closed three-manifold and of a non-Kähler compact complex surface is or 2 .

On donne une preuve simple d’un résultat dû à Dimca et Suciu : un groupe de Kähler qui est aussi le groupe fondamental d’une variété trois-dimensionelle est fini. On montre également qu’un groupe qui est le groupe fondamental d’une variété trois-dimensionelle et en même temps le groupe fondamental d’une surface complexe compacte non-kählerienne est soit soit 2 .
