Hyperbolic alternating virtual link groups

Jens Harlander[1]

(1) Boise State University, USA

We study the topology and geometry of virtual link complements and groups. We show that the groups defined by the Wirtinger presentation of certain prime dense alternating virtual links are CAT(0) and hyperbolic.

Keywords: Alternating virtual knot, hyperbolic group, Wirtinger complex, non-positively curved square complex
