Mutation and $\mathrm{SL}(2,\mathbb{C})$–Reidemeister torsion for hyperbolic knots

Pere Menal-Ferrer and Joan Porti

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 12 (2012) 2049–2067
Abstract

Given a hyperbolic knot, we prove that the Reidemeister torsion of any lift of the holonomy to SL(2, ) is invariant under mutation along a surface of genus 2, hence also under mutation along a Conway sphere.

Keywords
