Epimorphism between knot groups and isomorphisms on character varieties (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A partial order on the set of prime knots is given by the existence of an epimorphism between the fundamental groups of the knot complements. In this talk we will survey some basic properties of this order, and discuss some results and questions in connection with the SL(2,C)-character variety. In particular we study to what extend the SL(2,C)-character variety to determine the knot. This talk will be based on joint works with Michel Boileau(Univ. Aix-Marseille), Steven Sivek(Imperial College London), and Raphael Zentner(Univ. Regensburg).
