Abstract

Given any knot k, there exists a hyperbolic knot k̃ with arbitrarily large volume such that the knot group πk is a quotient of πk̃ by a map that sends meridian to meridian and longitude to longitude. The knot k̃ can be chosen to be ribbon concordant to k and also to have the same Alexander invariant as k.
