The Casson-gordon Invariant Concordance

  title={The Casson-gordon Invariant Concordance},
  author={C. LIvINGsToNt and T. Cochran and Patrick M. Gilmer},
CASSON-GORDON invariants were developed in 1975 to prove the existence of algebraically slice knots in S3 which are not smoothly slice, [1,2]. Here we will develop a theory of Casson-Gordon invariants of smooth links which is applicable in high dimensions as well as in dimension 3. One main application will be to the study of concordances to boundary links, expanding on the work in [19]. We will give new proofs that many of the explicit examples of high dimensional links first studied by… CONTINUE READING
