The gordian distance of handlebody-knots and Alexander biquandle colorings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We give lower bounds for the Gordian distance and the unknotting number of handlebody-knots by using Alexander biquandle colorings. We construct handlebody-knots with Gordian distance n and unknotting number n for any positive integer n.
