Seminar | September 13 | 4:10-5:30 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Kyle Miller, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

This will be an organizational meeting for a student learning seminar about 3-manifolds.

For the first meeting, we will talk about Tait's conjecture that reduced alternating link diagrams have minimal crossing number, which was resolved in 1987 by Kauffman, Murasugi, and Thistlethwaite using the Jones polynomial.
