Knotted embeddings in dimensions 3 and 4

Monday, February 12, 2018 - 9:00am to Friday, February 16, 2018 - 12:00pm

The main purpose of the conference is to review the state of the art in the understanding of knotted surfaces in dimension 4, focusing on how these surfaces are exploited to study knots and links in dimension 3. In particular, the interactions between the new tools that allow to describe knotted surfaces and the study of the knot concordance group will be explored. The conference will take place within the framework of a thematic month on «low dimensional topology and related topics» (see http://conferences.cirm-math.fr/1673.html for more details).
