The torsion-free case of a well-known (open!!) conjecture of Cannon says: Let G be a torsion free hyperbolic group. Suppose that its boundary is homeomorphic to S^2. Then G is the fundamental group of a closed hyperbolic 3-manifold. By the class of Farrell-Jones groups (FJ), we will mean the class of groups which satisfy both the K-theoretic and the L-theoretic Farrell-Jones Conjectures with coefficients in additive categories with finite wreath products. This class contains all hyperbolic groups, CAT(0)-groups, fundamental groups of $3$-manifolds, lattices in almost connected Lie groups...
