Title:  Turaev Viro invariants and Gromov norm

Abstract:   According to Chen and Yang's volume conjecture, the asymptotics of the Turaev-Viro invariants of a 3-manifold predicts its hyperbolic volume. We show a compatibility between Turaev-Viro invariants and JSJ-decomposition and get an inequality relating Turaev-Viro invariants and Gromov norm.
