TitleEpimorphisms between knot groups and special values of colored Jones polynomials
When an epimorphism between knot groups exits, it gives a partial order on the set of knots. Recently there are lots of studies related this partial order, or epimorphisms. Along these directions we conjectured some inequality on special values of colored Jones polynomials that appears in the volume conjecture. In this talk I will explain the motivation and the back ground. Further, we mention some example of torus knot and 2-bridge knot by using Mathematica. This is a joint work with Teruaki Kitano.
