The Number of Closed Essential Surfaces in Montesinos Knot Complements

Brannon Basilio

Abstract: In this prelim, we will discuss new results concerned with the number of closed, connected, essential, orientable surfaces in Montesinos knot complements. We give explicit counts of these surfaces by genus, up to isotopy. We will introduce the necessary background and definitions, the main tools of the proof, and discuss a future project. Even though this is a preliminary exam, all are welcome! If you are interested in attending, please email basilio3 (at) illinois (dot) edu for the Zoom link.
