Alternating knots with large boundary slope diameter

Geometry/Topology

Speaker: Thomas Mattman, CSU Chico
Location: 3106 MSB
Start time: Tue, Jan 14 2020, 3:10PM

We show that, for an alternating knot, the ratio of the diameter of the set of boundary slopes to the crossing number can be arbitrarily large. (joint with Ishikawa, Namiki, and Shimokawa)
