This booklet is meant as a reference on hyperlinks and at the invariants derived through algebraic topology from overlaying areas of hyperlink exteriors. It emphasizes positive aspects of the multicomponent case no longer typically thought of by means of knot theorists, equivalent to longitudes, the homological complexity of many-variable Laurent polynomial jewelry, unfastened coverings of homology boundary hyperlinks, the truth that hyperlinks usually are not frequently boundary hyperlinks, the reduce relevant sequence as a resource of invariants, nilpotent crowning glory and algebraic closure of the hyperlink workforce, and disc hyperlinks. Invariants of the kinds thought of the following play a necessary function in lots of purposes of knot idea to different parts of topology.

The homomorphism OqDq+i may be obtained as the composite pL>£ (A) /3|-\ where p : H*(X;S{AJ) -> HomA(THq(X; A /i ),5(A M )) is the evaluation homomorphism, Dq ' i s the duality isomorphism 32 2. HOMOLOGY AND DUALITY IN COVERS with coefficients 5(A /i ) and (3\T is the restriction to the torsion submodule THn-q-i(X, dX; AM) of the Bockstein homomorphism associated to the coefficient sequence 0 - AM - (AM)0 -> S(A„) - 0 These pairings may be interpreted geometrically in terms of intersections of dual cells in the covering space XH- Fix a triangulation of X.

The resulting pairing of tH\{X;A^) with tH\(X,dX; A^) into S(A/j,) is in fact nonsingular. Kii)). When fi = 1 the natural map from H\(X; A) to H\(X, dX; A) is an isomorphism, and zH\(X;A) = 0. The UCSS and duality imply that elH\(X; A) = Hi(X;A). In general, the two outer maps of the sequence H^dX; Ai) - ffi(X;Ai) - Hx{X,dX;k{) -> H^dX-A^ are non-zero. However the extreme terms vanish after localization with respect to any multiplicative system containing I l ^ ^ t j — 1). The localized Blanchfield pairing is then a (+l)-linking pairing on the localization of tH\{X\A^).

Let i? o, and with an involution". If (M, b) is an elinking pairing over R and N is a submodule of M then clearly N < N, and as these submodules have the same length they are in fact equal. If M is annihilated by p" then b takes values in the submodule p~nR/R of RQ/R. Thus if n > 1 and N = pn~lM we have N < N±. Hence (M,b) is Witt-equivalent to (N±/N,bN), where b^ is the ^-linking pairing induced on N^/N by b. Repeating this argument, we see that (M, b) is Witt equivalent to some (M', b') where pM — 0.
