Twisted Alexander polynomials, chirality, and local deformations of hyperbolic 3-cone-manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We discuss a relationship between the chirality of knots and higher dimensional twisted Alexander polynomials associated with holonomy representations of hyperbolic $3$-cone-manifolds. In particular, we provide a new necessary condition for a knot, that appears in a hyperbolic $3$-cone-manifold of finite volume as a singular set, to be amphicheiral. Moreover, we can detect the chirality of hyperbolic twist knots, according to our criterion, using low-dimensional irreducible representations. (This is a joint work with Takayuki Morifuji.)
