The Kakimizu complex of a linkGeometry/Topology
|Speaker: ||Jessica Banks, University of Oxford|
|Location: ||2112 MSB|
|Start time: ||Tue, Oct 25 2011, 3:10PM|
We give an introduction to the Kakimizu complex of a link, covering a number of recent results. In particular we will see that the Kakimizu complex of a knot may be locally infinite, that the Alexander polynomial of an alternating link carries information about its Seifert surfaces, and that the Kakimizu complex of a special alternating link is understood.
