Knot complements, hidden symmetries and reflection orbifolds

Full-Text   Cite this paper   Add to My Lib


In this article we examine the conjecture of Neumann and Reid that the only hyperbolic knots in the $3$-sphere which admit hidden symmetries are the figure-eight knot and the two dodecahedral knots. Knots whose complements cover hyperbolic reflection orbifolds admit hidden symmetries, and we verify the Neumann-Reid conjecture for knots which cover small hyperbolic reflection orbifolds. We also show that a reflection orbifold covered by the complement of an AP knot is necessarily small. Thus when $K$ is an AP knot, the complement of $K$ covers a reflection orbifold exactly when $K$ is either the figure-eight knot or one of the dodecahedral knots.
