Commensurability classes of $2$–bridge knot complements

Alan W Reid and Genevieve S Walsh

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 1031–1057
Abstract

We show that a hyperbolic 2–bridge knot complement is the unique knot complement in its commensurability class. We also discuss constructions of commensurable hyperbolic knot complements and put forth a conjecture on the number of hyperbolic knot complements in a commensurability class.

Keywords
