The twisted Alexander polynomial for finite abelian covers over three manifolds with boundary

Jérôme Dubois and Yoshikazu Yamaguchi

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 12 (2012) 791–804
Abstract

We provide the twisted Alexander polynomials of finite abelian covers over three-dimensional manifolds whose boundary is a finite union of tori. This is a generalization of a well-known formula for the usual Alexander polynomial of knots in finite cyclic branched covers over the three-dimensional sphere.
