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.
