Nontrivalent graph cocycle and cohomology of the long knot space

Keiichi Sakai

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 1499–1522
Abstract

In this paper we show that via the configuration space integral construction a nontrivalent graph cocycle can also yield a nonzero cohomology class of the space of higher (and even) codimensional long knots. This simultaneously proves that the Browder operation induced by the operad action defined by R Budney is not trivial.

Keywords
