@article{Flippen2021QuotientsOT, title={Quotients of the Gordian and H(2)-Gordian graphs}, author={Christopher Flippen and Allison H. Moore and Essak Seddiq}, journal={Journal of Knot Theory and Its Ramifications}, year={2021}, volume={30}, pages={2150037} }

The Gordian graph and H(2)-Gordian graphs of knots are abstract graphs whose vertex sets represent isotopy classes of unoriented knots, and whose edge sets record whether pairs of knots are related by crossing changes or H(2)-moves, respectively. We investigate quotients of these graphs under equivalence relations defined by several knot invariants including the determinant, the span of the Jones polynomial, and an invariant related to tricolorability. We show, in all cases considered, that the… Expand

Abstract We define a metric filtration of the Gordian graph by an infinite family of 1-dense subgraphs. The nth subgraph of this family is generated by all knots whose fundamental groups surject to a… Expand

The H(n)-Gordian complex of knots

In this paper, the H(n)-Gordian complex of knots is defined. The authors show that for any knot K and any positive integer r, there is a finite set of knots of size r containing K, such that the H(...
