The profinite completions of knot groups determine the Alexander polynomials

Jun Ueki

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 3013–3030

We study several properties of the completed group ring ̂[[t ̂]] and the completed Alexander modules of knots. Then we prove that if the profinite completions of the groups of two knots J and K are isomorphic, then their Alexander polynomials ΔJ(t) and ΔK(t) coincide.
