On the Kontsevich integral of Brunnian links

Kazuo Habiro and Jean-Baptiste Meilhan

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 6 (2006) 1399–1412

arXiv: math.GT/0605312

Abstract

The purpose of the paper is twofold. First, we give a short proof using the Kontsevich integral for the fact that the restriction of an invariant of degree 2n to (n+1)–component Brunnian links can be expressed as a quadratic form on the Milnor μ̄ link-homotopy invariants of length n + 1. Second, we describe the structure of the Brunnian part of the degree–2n graded quotient of the Goussarov–Vassiliev filtration for (n+1)–component links.
