Eigenvalue varieties of Brunnian links

François Malabre

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 2039–2050
Abstract

In this article, it is proved that the eigenvalue variety of the exterior of a nontrivial, non-Hopf, Brunnian link in S3 contains a nontrivial component of maximal dimension. Eigenvalue varieties were first introduced to generalize the A–polynomial of knots in S3 to manifolds with nonconnected toric boundary. The result presented here generalizes, for Brunnian links, the nontriviality of the A–polynomial of nontrivial knots in S3.
