Let M be a 3-manifold with torus boundary which is a rational homology circle. We study deformations of reducible representations of (M ) into SL2(C) associated to a simple root of the Alexander polynomial. We also describe the local structure of the representation and character varieties. © 2001, by Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG. All rights reserved.
