Morton made an insightful conjecture concerning the rst non-trivial coeecient of the Alexander-Conway polynomial r L (z) of an algebraically split link L, i.e. any pair of components has linking number 0. If r L (z) = P a i z i , then Morton conjectured that a i = 0 if i 2m ? 3 and a 2m?2 depends only on the triple Milnor-invariants ijk (L), where m is the number of components in L. In fact a proof of Morton's conjecture can be, more or less culled from the literature (see Section 2). It is the… CONTINUE READING
