#### Geometry of Knots

###### Brannon Basilio (UIUC)

Abstract: In this talk, we give an introduction to the geometry of knots. We first start with an example of how to decompose a knot complement into ideal tetrahedron and the conditions needed in order to obtain a hyperbolic structure on the tetrahedron. We then talk briefly of recent work in knot theory that uses this decomposition to obtain bounds on the hyperbolic volume of the knot complement. For Zoom information, please email basilio3 (at) illinois (dot) edu.
