Triple point numbers of surface-links and symmetric quandle cocycle invariants

Kanako Oshiro

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 10 (2010) 853–865
Abstract

For any positive integer n, we give a 2–component surface-link F = F1 F2 such that F1 is orientable, F2 is non-orientable and the triple point number of F is equal to 2n. To give lower bounds of the triple point numbers, we use symmetric quandle cocycle invariants.
