Nine generators of the skein space of the $3$–torus

Alessio Carrega

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 3449–3460
Abstract

We show that the skein vector space of the 3–torus is finitely generated. We show that it is generated by nine elements: the empty set, some simple closed curves representing the nonzero elements of the first homology group with coefficients in  2, and a link consisting of two parallel copies of one of the previous nonempty knots.
