A proof of the Kauffman–Harary Conjecture

Thomas W Mattman and Pablo Solis

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 9 (2009) 2027–2039
Abstract

We prove the Kauffman–Harary Conjecture, posed in 1999: given a reduced, alternating diagram D of a knot with prime determinant p, every nontrivial Fox p–coloring of D will assign different colors to different arcs.
