Signatures of colored links with application to real algebraic curves


Florens, V (2005). Signatures of colored links with application to real algebraic curves. Journal of Knot Theory and Its Ramifications, 14(7):883-918.

Abstract

We construct the signature of a μ-colored oriented link, as a locally constant integer valued function with domain (S1 - {1})μ. It restricts to the Tristram–Levine's signature on the diagonal and the discontinuities can occur only at the zeros of the colored Alexander polynomial. Moreover, the signature and the related nullity verify the Murasugi–Tristram inequality. This gives a new necessary condition for a link to bound a smoothly and properly embedded surface in B4, with given Betti numbers. As an application, we achieve the classification of the complex orientations of maximal plane non-singular projective algebraic curves of degree 7, up to isotopy.
