Knot modules and the Nakanishi index.

Kearton, C. and Wilson, S. M. J. (2003) 'Knot modules and the Nakanishi index.', Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society., 131 (2). pp. 655-663.


We examine the structure of the knot module of $9_{38}$ and show that the Nakanishi index of this knot is 2. The Nakanishi indices of $10_{69}$ and $10_{101}$ are also determined, by means of the Fox-Smythe row class. Finally, we point out that the Nakanishi index is not additive over knot composition.

Item Type:Article
Keywords:Knot module, Nakanishi index, Fox-Smythe, Row class.
