**(Some) Knot Theory in Lens Spaces**

Friday, October 5th, 2018, 5:00pm

Ungar Building Room 402**Abstract:**

Knot theory is an important tool in low dimensional topology. In this talk

I aim to give a flavor of some of the differences between studying knots in

the three sphere and studying knots in other three manifolds, specifically

lens spaces. There will be an introduction to a few concepts and tools of

knot theory in the three sphere and in lens spaces to highlight some of the

differences between them.
