Alternating knots satisfy the L-space knot conjecture Roberts, Rachel


I will describe a construction of (codimension one) co-oriented taut foliations (CTFs) of 3-manifolds. It follows from this construction that if K is a composite, alternating, or Montesinos knot, then the L-space conjecture of Ozsvath and Szabo holds for any 3-manifold obtained by Dehn surgery along K. I will focus on the alternating knot case. This work is joint with Charles Delman.
