Geometry & Topology Seminar

Geometric limits of knot complements

Jessica Purcell (Monash)

Thursday 1 June 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 535A.

Please join us for lunch after the talk!

Abstract: The complement of a knot often admits a hyperbolic metric: a metric with constant curvature -1. In this talk, we will investigate sequences of hyperbolic knots, and the possible spaces they converge to as a geometric limit. In particular, we show that there exist hyperbolic knots in the 3-sphere such that the set of points of large injectivity radius in the complement take up the bulk of the volume. This is joint work with Autumn Kent.
