Monodromies for branched coverings
Chennai Mathematical Institute.
In this talk we will compute the monodromy of the figure eight knot complement.The crux of the computation is to use the fact that the figure eight knot complement is the double-branched covering of the compliment of the trivial knot.Further,using the fact that the Borromean ring complement is a triple-branched covering of the compliment of the trivial knot,we will compute the monodromy of the Borromean ring complement too.
