Introduction to knot theory and the topology of knots

Chaeryn Lee (UIUC)

Abstract: This talk will introduce the very basic concepts and goals of knot theory. It will mainly focus on the topology of knots and how knot theory relates to 3-manifolds and surgery theory. Some topics to be covered will include Lens spaces, Heegaard splittings, Dehn surgery and knot exterior as a knot invariant.
