Invariants of links in thickened surfaces

J Scott Carter, Daniel S Silver and Susan G Williams

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 14 (2014) 1377–1394
Abstract

A group invariant for links in thickened closed orientable surfaces is studied. Associated polynomial invariants are defined. The group detects the nontriviality of a virtual link and determines its virtual genus.
