The number of surfaces of fixed genus in an alternating link complementGeometry/Topology

Let L be a prime alternating link with n crossings. We show that for each fixed g, the number of genus g incompressible surfaces in the complement of L is bounded by a polynomial in n. Previous bounds were exponential in n. This is joint work with Joel Hass and Abigail Thompson.
