On SL(3,)-representations of the Whitehead link group

In [9], we describe a family of representations in SL(3,) of the fundamental group π of the Whitehead link complement. These representations are obtained by considering pairs of regular order three elements in SL(3,) and can be seen as factorising through a quotient of π defined by a certain exceptional Dehn surgery on the Whitehead link. Our main result is that these representations form an algebraic component of the SL(3,)-character variety of π.
