p-colorable subgroup of Thompson's group F (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Thompson's group F is a subgroup of Homeo([0, 1]). In 2017, Jones found a way to construct knots and links from elements in F. Moreover, any knot (or link) can be obtained in this way. So the next question is, which elements in F give the same knot (or link)? In this talk, I define a subgroup of F and show that every element (except the identity) gives a p-colorable knot (or link). When p=3, this gives a negative answer to a question by Aiello. This is a joint work with Akihiro Takano.
