Intrinsic linking and knotting of graphs in arbitrary 3–manifolds

Erica Flapan, Hugh Howards, Don Lawrence and Blake Mellor

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 6 (2006) 1025–1035

arXiv: math.GT/0508004

Abstract

We prove that a graph is intrinsically linked in an arbitrary 3–manifold M if and only if it is intrinsically linked in S3. Also, assuming the Poincaré Conjecture, we prove that a graph is intrinsically knotted in M if and only if it is intrinsically knotted in S3.

Keywords
intrinsically linked graphs, intrinsically knotted graphs, 3–manifolds
