According to the purpose and operating plan of the above project, the head investigator has obtained the following results.
1.For two-bridge knots, necessary conditions on coefficients of Alexander polynomials are given.
2.Shibuya's result that any union of two nontrivial knots without local knots is prime is proved in a general setting by tangle arguments. And the concrete example of exception are given.
3.For every minimum-crossing knot-diagram among all unknotting-number-one two-bridge knots, the existence of crossings whose exchange yields the trivial knot is proved. This result is a part of answer of a conjecture on unknotting number.
These results 1,2, and are published.
4.The Delta-unknotting numbers for torus knots, positive closed 3-braids, and positive protzel knots are determined.
5.The borromean rings and the 3-component trivial link cannot be deformable to each other by a finite sequence of link-homotopies and cancellations of consecutive 4-crossings.
These results 4 and 5 are accepted to be published.
He gave lectures based on the above results at international conferences : Conference/Workshop for The Fifth MSJ International Research Instutute Knot Theory (Waseda University, 1996.7.22-31), The fifth Japan-Korea Seminar on Knots and Links (Korean Advansed Institute for Science and Technology, 1997.2.17-20).
Furthemore all investigators have obtained their results according to their roles.
