Title: Connection Blocking In Quotients of $Sol$

Abstract: Let $G$ be a connected Lie group and $\Gamma \subset G$ a lattice. Connection curves of the homogeneous space $M=G/\Gamma$ are the orbits of one parameter subgroups of $G$. To $block$ a pair of points $m_1,m_2 \in M$ is to find a finite set $B \subset M\setminus \{m_1, m_2 \}$ such that every connecting curve joining $m_1$ and $m_2$ intersects $B$. The homogeneous space $M$ is $blockable$ if every pair of points in $M$ can be blocked, otherwise we call it $non-blockable$. $Sol$ is an important Lie group and one of the eight homogeneous Thurston 3-geometries. It is a unimodular solvable Lie group diffeomorphic to $R^3$, and together with the left invariant metric $ds^2=e^{-2z}dx^2+e^{2z}dy^2+dz^2$ includes copies of the hyperbolic plane, which makes studying its geometrical properties more interesting. In this paper we prove that all quotients of $Sol$ are non-blockable. In particular, we show that for any lattice $\Gamma \subset Sol$, the set of non-blockable pairs is a dense subset of $Sol/\Gamma \times Sol/\Gamma$.
