Luisa Paoluzzi: Cyclic branched covers of alternating knots

Abstract:

The goal of the talk is to show that certain topological invariants of
knots, called cyclic branched covers, are strong invariants for prime
alternating knots. I will start by describing what cyclic branched
covers are before presenting some known facts concerning their
properties as invariants of knots. I will then point out what features
of alternating knots are key to prove the result. The actual proof will
be given in the second part of the talk.
