Title: Twisted Alexander Polynomials for Periodic Knots

Speaker: David Valdivia

Abstract:
Twisted Alexander Polynomials for periodic knots with periodicity q and an invariant axis can be found from a single 2 variable polynomial. This 2 variable polynomial is related to the twisted Alexander polynomial of the link obtained by the quotient of the knot union its axis under the periodic action on S^3.
