On the Alexander theorem for the oriented Thompson group $\vec{F}$

Valeriano Aiello

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 20 (2020) 429–438
Abstract

Recently, Vaughan Jones introduced a construction which yields oriented knots and links from elements of the oriented Thompson group F. Here we prove, by analogy with Alexander’s classical theorem establishing that every knot or link can be represented as a closed braid, that, given an oriented knot/link L, there exists an element g in F whose closure (g) is L.
