On reciprocality of twisted Alexander invariants

Jonathan A Hillman, Daniel S Silver and Susan G Williams

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 10 (2010) 1017–1026
Abstract

Given a knot and an SLnF representation of its group that is conjugate to its dual, the representation that replaces each matrix with its inverse-transpose, the associated twisted Reidemeister torsion is reciprocal. An example is given of a knot group and SL3 representation for which the twisted Reidemeister torsion is not reciprocal.

Keywords
