Previous work of the authors establishes a criterion on the fundamental group of a knot complement that determines when Dehn surgery on the knot will have a fundamental group that is not left-orderable. We provide a refinement of this criterion by introducing the notion of a decayed knot; it is shown that Dehn surgery on decayed knots produces surgery manifolds that have non-left-orderable fundamental group for all sufficiently positive surgeries. As an application, we prove that sufficiently… 
An Elementary Approach on Left-Orderability, Cables of Torus Knots and Dehn Surgery
Motivated by Clay and Watson's question on left-orderability of the fundamental group of the resultant space of an $r'$-surgery on the $(p, q)$-cable knots for $r' \in (pq-p-q,pq)$, this paper proves
Left-orderable fundamental groups and Dehn surgery
There are various results that frame left-orderability of a group as a geometric property. Indeed, the fundamental group of a 3-manifold is left-orderable whenever the first Betti number is positive;
Left-orderable, non-L-space surgeries on knots
TLDR
This work introduces a way to provide knots with left-orderable, non-L-space surgeries and presents infinitely many hyperbolic knots on each of which every nontrivial surgery is ahyperbolic, left- orderable,non- L-space surgery.
Left-orderable fundamental group and Dehn surgery on twist knots
For any hyperbolic twist knot in the 3-sphere, we show that the resulting manifold by $r$-surgery on the knot has left-orderable fundamental group if the slope $r$ satisfies the inequality $0\le r
Left-orderable fundamental groups and Dehn surgery on genus one 2-bridge knots
For any hyperbolic genus one 2-bridge knot in the 3-sphere, we show that the resulting manifold by r-surgery on the knot has left-orderable fundamental group if the slope r lies in some range which
On L-spaces and left-orderable fundamental groups
Examples suggest that there is a correspondence between L-spaces and three-manifolds whose fundamental groups cannot be left-ordered. In this paper we establish the equivalence of these conditions
On $1$-bridge braids, satellite knots, the manifold $v2503$ and non-left-orderable surgeries and fillings
We define the property (D) for nontrivial knots. We show that the fundamental group of the manifold obtained by Dehn surgery on a knot $K$ with property (D) with slope $\frac{p}{q}\ge 2g(K)-1$ is not
Ordered Groups and Topology
This is a draft of a book submitted for publication by the AMS. Its theme is the remarkable interplay, accelerating in the last few decades, between topology and the theory of orderable groups, with
ORDERABLE GROUPS AND TOPOLOGY MINICOURSE NOTES
  • Mathematics
  • 2014
The goal of this minicourse is to study the orderability properties of fundamental groups of 3-manifolds, and when possible, explain orderability or non-orderability of the fundamental group via
Order-detection of slopes on the boundaries of knot manifolds
. Motivated by the L -space conjecture, we investigate various notions of order-detection of slopes on knot manifolds. These notions are designed to characterise when rational homology 3-spheres

Abstract We establish a necessary condition that an automorphism of a nontrivial finitely generated bi-orderable group can preserve a bi-ordering: at least one of its eigenvalues, suitably defined,

Laminations and groups of homeomorphisms of the circle
Abstract.If M is an atoroidal 3-manifold with a taut foliation, Thurston showed that π1(M) acts on a circle. Here, we show that some other classes of essential laminations also give rise to actions
