1. Schneider, Jonathan. Diagrammatic Theories of 1- and 2- Dimensional Knots.

Degree: 2016, University of Illinois – Chicago

A meta-theory is described whereby any diagrammatic knot theory may be defined by specifying diagrams and moves. This is done explicitly in dimensions 1 and 2, with more abstract indication of how to extend the meta-theory to higher dimensions. Several examples are given in dimensions 1 and 2, with information about how the theories are related. A topological model for each theory is described. Particular focus is placed on virtual knot theory and welded knot theory, building on work by Kauffman, Satoh, and Rourke, with new results about Rourke's model of welded knots. Advisors/Committee Members: Kauffman, Louis H. (advisor), Radford, David (committee member), Takloo-Bighash, Ramin (committee member), Licht, Arthur L. (committee member), Culler, Marc (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: knot theory; knot diagrams; surface knot theory; 2-knot theory; virtual knots; virtual knot theory; welded knots

2. Kulkarni, Dheeraj. Relative Symplectic Caps, Fibered Knots And 4-Genus.

Degree: 2012, Indian Institute of Science

The 4-genus of a knot in S3 is an important measure of complexity, related to the unknotting number. A fundamental result used to study the 4-genus and related invariants of homology classes is the Thom conjecture, proved by Kronheimer-Mrowka, and its symplectic extension due to Ozsv´ath-Szab´o, which say that closed symplectic surfaces minimize genus. In this thesis, we prove a relative version of the symplectic capping theorem. More precisely, suppose (X, ω) is a symplectic 4-manifold with contact type bounday ∂X and Σ is a symplectic surface in X such that ∂Σ is a transverse knot in ∂X. We show that there is a closed symplectic 4-manifold Y with a closed symplectic submanifold S such that the pair (X, Σ) embeds symplectically into (Y, S). This gives a proof of the relative version of Symplectic Thom Conjecture. We use this to study 4-genus of fibered knots in S3 . We also prove a relative version of the sufficiency part of Giroux’s criterion for Stein fillability, namely, we show that a fibered knot whose mondoromy is a product of positive Dehn twists bounds a symplectic surface in a Stein filling. We use this to study 4-genus of fibered knots in S3 . Using this result, we give a criterion for quasipostive fibered knots to be strongly quasipositive. Symplectic convexity disc bundles is a useful tool in constructing symplectic fillings of contact manifolds. We show the symplectic convexity of the unit disc bundle in a Hermitian holomorphic line bundle over a Riemann surface. Advisors/Committee Members: Gadgil, Siddhartha.
